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 - God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood
BONUS #2 - God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood
"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.

|A couple who lived in the South
were moving to Connecticut to set up their business of raising Yorkshire
Terriers under a new name.
Being new to the area they wanted to come up with a catchy name for their new adventure in the area.
