Awakenings: 2 – Countdown to 4th of July

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Countdown: 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 to Happy 4th of July!

One day away from the Fourth of July celebration! Yep! It is tomorrow! As you continue to prepare for the festivities of Independence Day, keep in mind many of our service men and women are stationed on foreign shores where celebration may not be the topic of the hour. They are the defenders of our nation ensuring that the freedom obtained centuries ago remains in tact.

FEATURED VIDEO at Awakenings – Remember me! and MUSIC “For Freedom” by Avalon.

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Having a loved one deployed for lengthy periods of time is tough, but it’s especially hard during any holiday. While you might be reveling in backyard BBQs, listening to patriotic music and of course, enjoying the grand finale, fireworks, the day may not be so entertaining for everyone. For those defending our independence, the red, white and blue they carry on this day may only be in their hearts.

I pledge allegiance

Countdown: 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1 to Happy 4th of July!

Day after tomorrow we will be celebrating the 4th of July. Whew! Seems like just yesterday and we were celebrating Christmas…well, maybe not that far back but time does seem to fly by all too quickly!

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Go to Awakenings. As you watch the video and listen to the words of Red Skelton, keep in mind this was produced in the year 1969!

About the video: Ray Charles is a true Southern legend, for that matter, an American legend! The voice of his soul will remain in our hearts and minds forever. Let us never forget for whom this song was written – – – AMERICA, the Beautiful, our land, our home, our country, our freedom!
