Fantasia - America

Light cuts through 
    the crowds
illuminating the park
Mothers with children walk by 
    Stores open 
          and people come on out 
into the streets
    America is open for business
    This country has done 
some terrible things 
Non - withstanding it is our homeland 
   The colonists came here for 
                 freedom 
 Persisting - despite the cold and winter snows
   Now, Thanksgiving has come 
       Yes, we should apologize to our red brothers 
    But this Thanksgiving 
is the time to think about 
    all you are thankful for 
In this fantasia - this America

    a GREAT way to welcome thanksgiving. So much hardship in the world and especially where storms have hit, and yet we can have such hope!!
