America The Beautiful
(Click to Enlarge)
America The Beautiful, one of the truest and most loved of our patriotic music – though, obviously one derided and spurned by our domestic enemies, is, alongside The Star Spangled Banner, a favorite for this day, the 4th of July, and the anniversary of the difficult and bloody birth of our nation and our people’s liberation from tyranny.
But, despite the ugliness and even uglier rhetoric and strongly held beliefs of the enemies within our borders, America is beautiful. From Southeastern swamps to Northwestern rainforests; from Northeastern bogs to Southwestern deserts; America is filled with beauty and beautiful people.
Indeed, the one good that our enemies unintentionally provide is that the ugliness of the these weeds points out and draws attention to the splendor of the roses in our nation’s collective garden. Hence, like tares sown by the enemy throughout our amber fields of grain, perhaps they should be left until the upcoming harvest before being gathered and destroyed.
