Gaining our independence so many years ago,

Giving us our freedoms that we enjoy and know.

Waving our colors of red, white and blue so proud,

Honoring our country as we wave them in a crowd.

As you look at our flag and see the red, white and blue,

Know it’s more than fabric, it’s the country’s glue.

It’s what represents the things that we love and adore,

And it’s what so very many have given their lives for.

Thankful for the United States of America, so very dear

to me,

Thankful for this country and that we are living free.

Happy July Fourth!

Linda Andersen,

Buena Vista
