Three simple colors; red, white and blue,
and yet they provoke a sense of pride.

Simply organized stars and well patterned stripes,
but somehow it makes me tear up.

It's just fabric blowing in the wind,
however I see sacrifice.

It's only a song,
but it's history is deep.

We call it the "Fourth of July",
but really it's Independence Day.

So much pride, so many tears, so many sacrifices
have peppered our history to give us our independence!

Happy Independence Day.
