happy birthday, america!

Ever since September 11, I get all weepy at the words "Our flag was still there" in the Star Spangled Banner. Truly. When I sing it, my voice cracks.

Long may it fly, indeed! Happy Birthday to this great land we love. And thank you to the people who guard our liberty with their lives making sure that our grand old flag is indeed still there!

Have a happy 4th everybody!
