Carol Perkins: Happy Fourth of July

Thoughts while remembering her favorite patriotic song, 'This Is My Country - CAROL PERKINS, remembering an encounter in Cozumel
Next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: Part III of the Cruise

By Carol Perkins

This Is My Country
"This is my country! Land of my birth!
This is my country! Grandest on earth!
I pledge thee my allegiance, America, the bold,
For this is my country to have and to hold."
I am a patriotic soul, and when I think about my favorite patriotic song, "This Is My Country" ranks at the top. It makes me think of flags flying around the square, church choirs singing "America, the Beautiful," Fourth of July, and fireworks igniting from sea to shining sea.
