Week 12

I am proud to be an American!
I am in awe that I have been chosen to live in this blessed nation.
I feel so lucky to have never felt hunger, fear, thirst or being too cold or too hot.
I am thankful to have a roof over my head (that does not leak)
and the freedom of speech and religion.
I am grateful for this land of peace and prosperity where life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is a living motto of this great nation.

I'm Proud to be an American
By Lee Greenwood
If tomorrow all the things were gone I’d worked for all my life,
And I had to start again with just my children and my wife.
I’d 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’d 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 LA,
Well, there’s pride in every American heart,and it’s time to stand and say:

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’d 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.
