America! Where The Stars And Stripes And The Eagle Fly!

America!  Where The Stars And Stripes And The Eagle Fly!

My husband has an old school country music mix that he plays full blast when he’s working out.  One particular song, “Where The Stars And Stripes And the Eagle Fly” by Aaron Tippin, is usually amped way up to an even more deafening volume–most nights I’ll yell into him to turn the music down, but with the 4th of July just a few days away, I guess I was feeling the patriotic spirit of the season, so the other evening I took the time to really listen to the words of this song as I stood outside our exercise room–and it didn’t take long for tears to fill my eyes…

You can listen to the song here, if you’d like, while scrolling through post:
