Yay! It's time for the 4th of July! Happy Birthday, U.S.A.!!
|July arrived quickly!|
Flags are snapping in the hot breezes and banners and buntings are fluttering all over the city
|***Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light.........***|
O say can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming, Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bomb bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there, O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? .....Our National Anthem
