Patriot Day

“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.

- Minot J. Savage
(10 June 1841 - 22 May 1918)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Generally our observances here are happy ones.  This day is not one of those, nor is it a celebration, but as with so many things in history, it's important that we remember.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNqUORIFV4I - God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q65KZIqay4E - God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood 

~~~~~~~~~~~


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_Bless_the_USA:  

"God Bless the USA" is an American patriotic song written and recorded by country music artist Lee Greenwood. The first Greenwood album it appears on is 1984's You've Got a Good Love Comin'. It reached No. 7 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart when originally released in the spring of 1984, and was played at the 1984 Republican National Convention with President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan in attendance, but the song gained greater prominence during the Gulf War in 1990 and 1991, as a way of boosting morale.

The popularity of the song rose sharply after the September 11, 2001 attacks and during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and the song was re-released as a single, re-entering the country music charts at No. 16. The song was also re-recorded in 2003 and released as "God Bless the USA 2003". The song could often be heard on the radio after those events, and versions of the song are widely distributed online. Lee Greenwood also wrote a Canadian version of this song called God Bless Canada. The song also rose up in popularity in May 2011 when Osama bin Laden was killed by an American raid in Pakistan.[1]

        From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 09/10/13 - "Southern Ingenuity":

THIS IS TRULY A GREAT OLD ONE...and it never wears out south of M-D line.


One morning 3 South Carolina good ole boys and 3 Yankees were in a ticket line at the Greenville train station heading to Charlotte for a big football game.

The 3 Northerners each bought a ticket and watched as the 3 Southerners bought just one ticket among them.

"How are the 3 of you going to travel on one 1 ticket?" asked one of the Yankees. "Watch and learn," answered one of the boys from the South.

When the 6 travelers boarded the train, the 3 Yankees sat down, but the 3 Southerners crammed into a bathroom together and closed the door.

Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect tickets. He knocked on the bathroom door and said, "Tickets. please."

The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand.

The Conductor took it and moved on.

The Yankees saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever idea. Indeed, so clever that they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money.

That evening after the game when they got to the Charlotte train station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip while to their astonishment the 3 Southerners didn't buy even 1 ticket.

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed Yankees. "Watch and learn,"answered one of the Southern boys.

When they boarded the train the 3 Northerners crammed themselves into a bathroom and the 3 Southerners crammed themselves into the other bathroom across from it.

Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Southerners left their bathroom and walked quietly over to the Yankee's bathroom. He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket please".



There's just no way on God's green earth to explain how the Yankees won the war...

     Thanks so much, George! This is delicious!

God Bless the USA

Written and recorded by Lee Greenwood (b. 27 Oct 1942), 1983/4
 

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife

Thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'll gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
There's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say...

That I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'ld gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'ld gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
