Independence Day (U.S.A)

Independence Day (U.S.A)

It’s July 4th
Let’s celebrate this special day
For it’s the day of America’s Independence
So let us be mindful
To thank God for these blessings

Sadly our beloved nation
Is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
There’s civil unrest
As Black Lives Matter takes to the streets
Protests have arisen over Confederate monuments
But with all these problems
Let Americans reach out compassionately
To heal these afflictions in our land

America’s Independence was first proposed
By Richard Henry Lee of Virginia
That led to the declaration of Independence from Great Britain
From that time on there were celebrations
But now with social problems in our land
People are wearing masks, practicing social distancing
And there will be limited fireworks, and gun-salutes
To commemorate this special day
But the spirit of the nation lives on

“God, continue to guide America.  Let’s glorify her achievements.  And let the nation’s universal goals embrace freedom for all – young, old, male, female, black, white, religious, and non-religious with equanimity for all people including LGBTQ+.  Regardless, let American creed, color, national origin, and beliefs help us to be beacons of hope in the world.”
