Home of the Free and The Brave

Home of The Free and the Brave

The 4th of July is a
special time to 
remember with parades
picnics, family and friends, 
but what touches me
most is to hear the
Star Spangled Banner.
To sing of the Star 
Spangled Banner
yet Waving and,
To know that I 
live in the Home, 
of The Free
and the Brave
brings me to tears,
every time I 
hear it sung. 

         Jerri Ward
