This song is for the coming Memorial Weekend: Rodney Atkin's "It's America."
I wish I had the local music video that the students of Trailer High made last year for our high school news channel. I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one wiping tears on that 2nd verse:
"...I saw a little town that some big twister tore apart.
And people came from miles around
Just to help their neighbors out
And I was thinking to myself
I'm so glad that I live in America..."
"Cause it's a kid with a chance, it's a rock 'n roll band
It's a farmer cutting hay
It's a big flag flying in a summer wind
Over a fallen hero's grave...
It's cities and farm, it's open arms
And one nation under God
