I am a Patriot

The Liberty Bell by H.R.H. Moore

Ring out that hallowed Bell!
Ring it long, ring it long;
Through the wide world let it tell
That Freedom's strong.

When I Pledge the Allegiance, when I hear Lee Greenwood sing, "I'm Proud to be an American," when I see the Liberty Bell, when I hear stories of the founding fathers and patriots, when I go through Independence Hall and the National Archives and see the flag fly in a parade...I become very emotional. I am so grateful to be an American and I love my country. I love reading in the Book of Mormon how this land is chosen for freedom and the restoration of the gospel. What great men under the guidance of God, established this nation for us. Thank you!

I am the same way. When John comes out the room with his uniform on I can't help but become a little teary. Plus he looks so HANDSOME!

I get a little misty over it all too. Us military wives just get that way.

It looks like the Liberty Bell has sprouted legs. I always imagined LB would wear knickers or perhaps slacks. Who knew? LB prefers jeans.

Too bad I don't know how to use any kind of photoshop program!

That would be some impressive photo shop skills.
