Indeed God bless America! It was 234 years ago when the United States declared its independence from Britain. Thirteen states have joined the revolutionaries and declared independence, 13 states and 56 brave Americans signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1996.
The first thirteen states of the America includes the following: New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. I was honored because one of my ancestors signed this document, John Adams of Massachusetts.
I know many hate the United States for their neo-liberal policy and I am in fact one of those who had been critical about them but I still believe that the American people are a good people and today they deserve the salute and recognition of the whole world.
The fourth of July is not about the United States but it is about freedom. It is about fighting for freedom and equality. Everyone should celebrate this day for this day signified the triumph of freedom over slavery, of tyranny over justice, of love over hate... this is Independence.
Here is God Bless America Lyrics and Video. The song also contains memorable 4th of July Quotes from our forefathers.
God bless America, land that I love
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with the light from above
From the mountains To the prairies,
To the ocean white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
