Why we stand: A celebration of America

Yesterday, with the Philadelphia Eagles football team mostly unwilling to come to the White House for a commemoration of their Super Bowl championship, President Trump welcomed Eagles fans and others for a different kind of celebration.

“It is my great pleasure to welcome everyone to the White House for this patriotic celebration. A beautiful, beautiful day, and a beautiful celebration,” the President said. “We love our country. We respect our flag. And we always proudly stand for the National Anthem. We always will stand for the National Anthem,” he continued. “So we stand together for freedom. We stand together for patriotism. And we proudly stand for our glorious Nation under God.”

The ceremony included performances of the Star-Spangled Banner and God Bless America by the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus.

Wow! I really LOVE hearing our anthem sung by an excellent, all-male choir. (No screechy sopranos … I’m a soprano, so I can say this!) I confess though, I think God Bless America benefits from the female parts. Just my opinion! 🙂

ANOTHER WIN for OUR MILITARY: President Donald J. Trump signed the VA MISSION Act of 2018, which will transform the VA healthcare system and provide more choices for America’s veterans.
