What I'm Listening To:
Lee Greenwood "God Bless the USA" from American Patriot

Every 4th of July this is the song that can make me be moved to the edge of tears. I don't know that I've ever been to a fireworks display it isn't played at. I remember the song from my childhood for a different reason - hearing it play while I was clinging to my Uncle in terror after witnessing a not yet extinguished firework remnant land on a lady sitting next to us (she was fine). As I've grown older and forever having the events of September 11 in my memory this song takes on a whole new meaning for me. Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!
