“Could you just come to the outside of the door and listen for a minute. . .”

Oh beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife
Who more than self, their country loved
And mercy more than life
America, America may God thy gold refine
‘Til all success be nobleness
And every gain divined

And you know when I was in school
We used to sing it something like this, listen here

Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain
But now wait a minute, I’m talking about
America, sweet America
You know, God done shed his grace on thee
He crowned thy good, yes he did, in brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
(America, America, God shed his grace on thee)
America, I love you America, you see
My God he done shed his grace on thee

And you oughta love him for it
‘Cause he, he, he, he crowned thy good
He told me he would, with brotherhood
(From sea to shining Sea)
Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
(Shining sea)

    It took a blind man to see things as they really are. How beautiful we were!

    Never forgot what was taken from us. Never forget who did this. Never stop until they are gone.

    The Jan. 6 overlords remind me of the Skeksis from the Jim Henson movie the dark crystal.
    Whatever they are, they are evil.
    God Bless America!

    Desktop rotation features Memphis Belle B-17, LRRP squad, US Navy dive bombers WWII, 101st Airborne at Bastogne, P-51 Mustang, P-40 Warhawk, Sherman Tank, colorized USMC in Korea, equipment from WWI to now.
    Other sides are featured as well since all warriors are brothers.
    There is an awesome desktop showing soldiers from all time standing with Jesus.

      On my left 27″ monitor there is a red 69 Mustang Mach 1 and on the right 27″ monitor there is a blue 68 Mustang fastback, both done by Danny Whitfield. My favorites of that era and I find them soothing.

      Years ago I was cycling through military planes by Dru Blair.
