What's Great About America

On this Independence Day, it's good to reflect on why our country is so great. If you think otherwise, you've wandered into the wrong blog. John Stossel has a Fox News special by the same title that Mrs. Daddy and I found very uplifting and a reminder to not give up on the great people of this land. As a teaser, I thought I would share the opening segment:

At Church this morning we sang America the Beautiful. I'd like to add the second 3rd stanza as another thing that's great about America:

O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
Who more than self their country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
