God Bless the USA!

We’re getting ready to start school on Tuesday, and I’m excited about studying early American History with my children this year.  My prayer is that as they learn more the sacrifices that were made to establish our nation, they will grow to appreciate the freedoms we enjoy, be willing to fight to maintain them, and recognize that the 4th of July is about more than just parties and fireworks (and the start of a new school year for us).

In honor of America’s Independence Day, I wanted to share this beautiful a cappella rendition of Lee Greenwood‘s song “God Bless the USA” by Home Free.  This song always give me goosebumps, and this beautiful cover is just as moving as the original.  The video even features stunning views of Mt. Rushmore in the background, making it a perfect kick-off for 4th of July!
