American Tears

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Last year my husband and I were invited to the Annual Veterans Day Program at one of our local elementary schools. During the program, the choir sang this song. I had never heard of it before but it is so moving and inspirational that I had to share it with you:

American Tears by Teresa Jennings

 Sometimes I think about America. About her struggles through the years.

I think of people who did what they had to do with the strength to act their fears.

Sometimes I think about America. About her future and her past.

I know I’m blessed to be living in Liberty. In a land where freedom will last.

     For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soldiers For all the pioneers.

     I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American tears.

Sometimes I think about America, about her people’s legacy. I wonder if they knew that what they had to do would be known throughout history.

Sometimes I think about America. About her pain along the way. I know it had to be for our democracy. For the world we live in today.

     For the heroes. For the patriots. For the soldiers. For all the pioneers.

     I will always be an American, and I’ll always cry American tears.
