PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN



The Fourth of July is coming soon!

What are your family traditions?

Do you shoot off fire crackers?

Go to a community event?

Or maybe…Barbeque hamburgers and eat juicy watermelon with the little people?

Do you fly the flag of the United States of America?

Have you ever read the Declaration of Independence? It is so very eye-opening…

It is such a blessing to be a part of this great nation. Please remember those who have fought and died, clear back to 1776…

This video says it all…

3000 vets on motorcycles
>from across the USA paraded in D.C. the Sunday before Memorial Day,
>while a solitary, saluting Marine greeted them out on Constitution
>Avenue... the Marine stood at salute for 3 straight hours, while the
>parade of roaring bikes kept on coming.... it is held in remembrance
>of those who've fallen in the military.... the event (or the group)
>is called Rolling Thunder... George Bush used to meet these bikers
>before they paraded... the camera is on the Marine a lot... watch
>his struggles with his emotions, and his struggles with holding that
>salute... the way he salutes is very touching... his head lowered,
>his eyes down, in reverence for the fallen... I know what he was feeling...
>and as I watched him, I could feel it too.... it got to be overwhelming
>for him... and the tears started flowing... watch what he says when
>he finally breaks, but keeps right on holding that salute...



HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
