Lee Greenwood’s God Bless The USA – What Memories Does This Song Give You?
This song has touched so many people, and everybody has their own memory with 'God Bless The USA'. On this Memorial weekend, let's reflect on what it does for you.
I'll go ahead and start...
Our family went through a loss of my younger brother in 2004, in the war in Afghanistan. Every year we were invited to spend the weekend at a resort in Brainerd for a gathering of the Minnesota "Gold Star Families". There's a restaurant and bar in the resort that started up karaoke that night, and I saw they had "God Bless The USA", so I sang it. Because most of the people there were Gold Star Families, it got everybody's attention. After I finished singing it everybody was standing, clapping, and many tears. It was both emotional and amazing, and I'll never forget that experience.
Now it's your turn!
