Happy Birthday America

Happy Birthday America

Happy Birthday America. 

For over 200 years you have represented all that mankind hopes to be. Through struggle and strife, by both inward and outward forces, your banner continues to proudly wave.

You have suffered unjustly at the hands of those whose envy of what you represent cannot be quenched except to try and destroy what they do not understand.

Your flag has been trampled, torn and burned by your enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Your true patriots have been chastised and killed defending your ideals.

Each new sunrise that you survive gives each and every one of us who still whisper your name with hallowed respect, hope for tomorrow.

There are those who have claimed your defeat only to see you rise once more to triumph over the grave they felt certain had been sealed.

Though you may have many times suffered the brutality of your enemies, those who love you will always be there to give your armor of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness the caring attention it so richly deserves.

For in its gleam, the hope of all who embrace its reflection, is restored.

Amen.
