THREE DAY QUOTE CHALLENGE – DAY 3 – DEMOCRACY

I HAVE BEEN INVITED BY ROBIN BALDWIN AT WORDS FOR LIFE, RBALDWIN0204.WORDPRESS.COM. TO PARTICIPATE IN A THREE DAY QUOTE CHALLENGE. I WILL BE POSTING A QUOTE ABOUT DEMOCRACY FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS. IT JUST SEEMED RIGHT GIVEN WE ARE CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF OUR NATION THIS HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

My last quote is from George M.Cohan an immigrant who became a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

COHAN

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high-flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of the land I love,
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘Neath the Red, White and Blue,[N 4]
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,[N 5]
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

Happy Birthday fellow citizens,

bernadette

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. An excellent choice. I recall that every morning during my elementary school years in the New Jersey Public School system that we would begin the day with singing Patriotic Songs. This was always one of my favorites, and as I read this lovely post of yours I was surprised to realize I remembered the words and tune. Thank you. 🐞
