America the Beautiful

What America truly means.

We encourage everyone to read the words of our founding fathers and learn all about the Revolutionary War, plus where the founding fathers learned of amazing principles.

We can also read the words of John Locke and Montesquieu. Much about the philosophy leading to our government system.

The U.S. Constitution: the framework for the greatest nation in history.

America the Beautiful Lyrics

Play “America the Beauti…”
on Amazon Music Unlimited (ad)
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!

America! America!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.

America! America!
God mend thine ev’ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.

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 ev’ry gain divine.

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!
God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.

**I think the words and music say so much that time and experience grows with understanding.

**I thought, having read a few blogs, remembering some in the past, but also what I’ve seen on television from time to time, that all too many people really don’t know what America is and stands to represent. Reading the Pledge of Allegiance, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the founding fathers words and how they came to believe and start a new country, along with the Revolutionary War history and all that surrounds, is a good beginning. I do believe, unfortunately, many, many people wave the flag, drive with the flag, but they don’t know America and her history. But today is always a good day to start. Each person can learn, then share, and discuss. How much they can enrich their understanding and feelings of hope.

**Often, once people start learning about America’s true history, they keep reading more. The story is incredible.

Beginning to the Declaration of Independence:

In Congress, July 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

**With the Fourth of July right around the corner, how much we can share.
