    Cool Where The Eagle Protects The Dove

    By Peter S. Griffin....................


    God bless this land we love,
    WHERE THE EAGLE PROTECTS THE DOVE....
    Where our children grow up free,
    In Your land of opportunity....

    From the cool, clear waters of Puget Sound,
    To Florida's white sands, renown....
    From the shores of our Great Lakes,
    Across our deserts and plains so great....


    God bless each and every state,
    Bestow on us, Thy saving grace....
    Save us from Satan's evil fate,
    Liberty and justice, be our sacred mates....


    God bless our people, of every race,
    Let equality reflect, on every face....
    Race, creed or color, be no disgrace,
    Our hands clasped in sincere embrace....


    Bring gentle rain, to moisten our soil,
    The sweat of our labor, to flower from toil....
    Send subtle winds, to caress our wheat,
    Provide your people, blessed manna to eat....


    Let the sun shine, to brighten our days,
    "The beginning of wisdom, fear of Yahweh"....
    "One nation under God, " we kneel and pray
    For truth and righteousness, to lead our way....



    Let the "Stars and Stripes", wave and greet,
    All earth's people, seeking peace....
    Let our example, shine clear and bright,
    So all the world's nations, see Your light....


    Where the strong, protect the weak,
    Where the brave, respect the meek....
    Where the rich, share with the poor,
    Where songs of praise, to heaven soar....


    From Alaska's snow capped peaks,
    To Hawaii's orchids, so sweet....
    God bless this land we love,
    WHERE THE EAGLE PROTECTS THE DOVE....

    Cool AMERICA’S GREATEST TREASURE

    By Peter S. Griffin...............


    AMERICA’S GREATEST TREASURE,
    To evaluate the worth, value beyond measure…
    What could it be? Gems, silver, gold…hoarded in secrecy?
    No, my friends, this treasure is right here, amongst you and me…

    Take a good look, and you will clearly see,
    Deeds recorded, inscribed, in our nation’s history…
    For without this resource, our country would have ceased to be,
    For my friends, there is no substitute for liberty..!

    Graying hair, failing eyes, wrinkled brows, a distant stare,
    A slow, deliberate gait, missing limbs, confinement to a wheelchair…
    A Mother’s gold star, loved ones lost, tears in ones eyes,
    Folded flags, old uniforms, medals worn, and muffled cries…


    All these descriptions symbolize service, dedication, and sacrifice,
    For these reasons, our way of life, and our nation thrives…
    For love of country, many hardships and sufferings were endured,
    Our many rights and freedoms, thus secured…


    It is not only the rumor of war, but the beast itself, they have confronted,
    Tis the only way, hell on earth, can be successfully blunted…
    For always, unfortunately, it seems to be,
    The way despots and tyrants try to extinguish the flame of liberty…


    Through the ages, the beast has appeared all over the earth,
    These are the times when humanity must prove it’s worth…
    Ordinary people, forced, must take a stand,
    To protect the dove, that graces our land…


    Who can these brave men and women be..,
    Those who faced the beast, protected lives and liberty…
    Our nation’s veterans, AMERICA’S GREATEST TREASURE,
    To salute them on their special day, our greatest pleasure..!
