Happy Birthday U.S.A.
By Sarah Lane
The fourth of July is a special day
to remember those lives that were taken away.
Our Founding Father’s fought so hard,
for freedom to be our country’s heart.
Every one of the 13 colonies,
agreed upon the idea of equality.
No matter how hard the times did seem,
they refused to give up on the American Dream.
1776 marks the start of Democracy,
for the home of the brave and land of the free.
After Declaring our Independence,
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,
combining with the Constitution,
the United States became an institution.
American flags in red, white and blue,
announced the fact all men were equal.
Stars and stripes now in the wind flail,
so we can recognize what America entails.
