US Flag Scene

Though the national anthem (The Star Spangled Banner) is meaningul, this song rings truer to my thoughts on being an American.

America The Beautiful

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 impassion'd 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 prov'd
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.

This site has a page full of patriotic songs and lyrics. It also has a lot of other music resources that would be of particular interest to kids.

Vine & Fig Tree

At first, you might wonder why this is on the United States page as it covers a whole lot of topics that are certainly not nationalistic... but then you might run across pages like Holy Trinity Church v. The United States where the United States Supreme Court is quoted... and 100 or so other links discuss present-day national issues in a historical perspective.

If you enjoy a good workout, this site is not easy. It has 1000+ pages on a myriad of topics, and presents radical thoughts, but not in a popular sense... it does not demand the reader accept the author's viewpoints.
