My poem, "Love and Pride of USA", and its video hopefully remind all Americans about the wondrous reasons why we should never take our freedoms and rights for granted that we enjoy in our beloved USA ... and the responsibilities to safeguard them as every generation before has done!
The image here and shown as the video's cover was created by two merging scenes from "Love and Pride of USA" ... It shows a girl and boy saying the Pledge of Allegiance with a flag overlay that is being held by a soldier with one hand, as he stands at an open door of an attack helicopter flying over Afghanistan with the other hand tightly gripping a railing.

Love and Pride of USA
Think about those victorious first ones who took their gallant stand against a mighty country once theirs, knowing the deadly cost defeat would bring.
Think about the many going west beyond America's first states, living through untold hardships and burying loved ones along the way to settle the great land of liberty that shines from sea to sea.
Think about the lush green fields where children once played being stained red by the blood of many of these same young ones against each other, even brothers, to preserve a union born in 1776.
Think about all the great ones who have enriched our lives through their leadership, genius, and vision... inspiring more like them to do what is yet to come.
Think about those times when our young brave of generations past and today heard America's motherly call to come to a friend's aid and defend what the first ones gave us with the Declaration of Independence.
Think about Old Glory waving her red, white, and blue above you with hand over heart, being carried in the sure grip of a valiant troop in harm's way, and embracing a fallen hero's coffin.
