Two hundred and forty years ago today, our founding fathers set in motion a chain of events that produced the country we enjoy today. It's doubtful they would know exactly what to make of Donald or Hillary, but they would probably be savvy enough to know if the USA had lasted over two centuries, it would take more than a bumbling or dishonest chief executive to destroy it.
Patriotism shouldn't be donned just once or twice a year, but should come from the heart. Russian immigrant Irving Berlin had a heart filled with love for his adopted country. If his voice is lacking in polish, his songwriting certainly wasn't.
Yes, we humbly pray today that God will bless America...the land that we love.
