The Star Spangled Banner--Happy 4th of July

I couldn't think of anything other than The Star Spangled Banner to begin this day of celebration of America's 234th anniversary of it's independence.

America has it's faults-but above any other it stands for the principles of liberty and freedom.  May we never forget that liberty has come at a cost and price of lives given in battle and honor of our country and flag.  Someone's sacrifice purchased that freedom.
