"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


My Statue of Liberty - Independence Day 2011

Apparently, I am incredibly lacking in knowledge about several wonderful, wonderful songs related to my country's heritage. I had never heard this song until it was special music at our church yesterday, July 3. It touched me deeply. And I came to find out it's been around a while. Love finding "new to me" songs that are classics. Don't you?

Anyhow, I think this song, and video, are quite appropriate for today.

Happy Independence Day, my friends!

  1. I had never heard this song before either. I really like the analogy of the Cross being our Statue of Liberty.


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
