Happy Fourth of July!

I am so proud to be an American. How lucky is that? To be born and raised in our wonderful country. Thanks to all the military, policemen, firemen and service people that keep us safe and free!

I always get tears in my eyes when I hear our National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. It was amazing to live in South America and come around the corner to the Embassies and see the flag. Wow!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

And a few flag photos:

In Texas:

And in New Mexico:

In Colorado on Gene's birthday:

And in Mexico when we went in April, I think.

Joanna has some great flag photos, too. Start with the Memorial Day Flag.

On the USA Flag Site you can find the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner (there is more than one verse, you know) and learn about the flag.

I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los NiƱos. (Link on sidebar) "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors.
