Independence Day

A song has been running through my head the last few days... especially the verse below. Sorry I couldn't find a video or soundtrack of it. Something to remember, as we celebrate the birth of our country and honor the sacrifices so many have made for its ideals in the last 233 years.

So what do you call justice,
And what is freedom for?
Don’t let the town crier decide if we go to war.
'cause this ain’t about your medals,
The choice is of the soul;
And hate is never brave
While mercy’s always, always bold.

Adrienne Young, "Blinded by Stars"
