Preserving America's Past to Protect Her Future


American FreedomThe American Flag

The American Nation
and Her People

From their earliest
Americans sought

The Founding
made the dream
of freedom
a reality
with the signing
of the
of Independence
227 years ago
and the
against England
that followed.

Today we still
enjoy these freedoms.
And although
have recently
to destroy
our spirit and
our way of life,
we stand
ready again
to defend

May God
remind us
of our past
prepare us
for our future.

God Bless America.

God Bless America,
Land that I love.

Stand beside her
and guide her
Through the night
with the light
from above.

From the mountains
to the prairies
To the oceans
white with foam.

God bless America,
My Home Sweet Home.

God bless America,
My Home Sweet Home.
