  •  when I wrote this diary (4+ / 0-)

    it was the Lee Greenwood song that was running through my head, hence the title.  I used to be able to at least hear that song without cringing, now not so much.  

      But love of country is unquestioned. On Sept 11, 2008 I went to a volunteer meeting for the Obama campaign.  When I came home I learned that my house had burned down, my three cats had all suffocated and most of my belongings were destroyed.  Standing in front of the house with the firemen I saw my flag still waving above the house and found some comfort.   On that particular anniversary surrounded by First Responders there to help me, I was responding to the call, 'Ask what you can do for your country'.
