God Bless The USA"

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 livin' 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 USA

Why Lee Greenwood Wrote the Patriotic Hit Song

Lee Greenwood’s goal was to bring the country together, simple as that.

“I’ve always wanted to write a song about America, and I said we just need to be more united,” Greenwood tells The Boot about the song’s birth. Similarly, he tells NPR it was a plea for unity, “I meant that the nation would kind of ‘kumbaya’ — gather arms and let’s love each other.”

He became inspired by military veterans he saw at his shows and decided to begin writing an anthem for them and our country, NPR reports.While the song is also called “Proud to Be an American,” Greenwood intentionally used “God Bless the USA” as the song title because of his strong faith.

“I wanted to put God first, because I’m a conservative Christian, and I wanted to make sure that God was honored in the song,” he says.

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As TAPS began to play.
The Chaplin led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.
They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here 'neath the sand.
I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.
Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,
Thanks for what you've given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore.

Donald Trump Honors the Fallen on Memorial Day – ‘America’s Warriors Are Single Greatest Force for Justice, Peace, Liberty’​

Former President Donald Trump honored the fallen on Memorial Day Monday, saying “they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail.”

“America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth. God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines,” he wrote.

“We honor them today, forever, and always… the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms,” the 45th President said.

“The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history. On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail,” he continued.

Trump asserted veterans “made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace.”

“It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny,” Trump concluded.
