Happy Birthday, America!

1.  Wikipedia gives information on The Star Spangled Banner, including the full lyrics. Here's Whitney Houston singing the National Anthem - awesome!

2.  Have you ever read the entire Declaration of Independence? Here's a copy with a list of the signers below it.

3.  Betsy Ross will forever go down in American History as the woman who made our first flag. Check out this article with its many fascinating details and links to further explore the subject.

May this great country return to her roots and live on for future generations. Happy Birthday, America! 

Writers and Readers:  What is your favorite patriotic song? Mine is God Bless America. I remember Kate Smith singing it when I was a little girl.

Happy 4th of July Susan. I do not know any patriotic songs (American or Dutch for that matter) :)

Hi Quiet Spirit - Yes, my pastor showed a video with Larnelle Harris singing, God Bless America. We're blessed to live in a country where we can worship freely.

Hi Marja - Thank you!

Susan :)
