Old School Friday #20 "Freedom Friday"

You Know What It Is!!!!
It is...FRIDAY!! Which is my favorite day of the week because I get to post my "Old School Friday" Picks! In case you are new around these parts and don't know what "Old School Friday" is, well it is grown folks MUSIC! Yes we post some music that comes from some time before 1999, (hopefully) to relive some memories, and to educate or just entertain each other.
Ms Grapevine and MarvalusOne have teamed up to create a meme titled Old School Friday and since I love my music I had to sign up to join! To join in the Old School Friday Fun go Here for guidelines.

The theme for this week ,

"Freedom Friday"

Here are the other "Old School Friday" participants:

- Electronic Village - Fresh And Fab - Kim

- Ms Grapevine -Quick -Marcus LANGFORD

- Cassandra - Danielle - iriegal -Hagar's Daughter - Lisa C

-Chocl8t - DP - Dallassouth - Kreative Talk

-Marvalus One - Regina - Clnmike - Vivrant Thing

-AJ - Sharon - The Creole Pimp - Invisible Woman

-Beleiver 1964 - Cooper - SJP - sHaE-sHaE

When you think of the word "FREEDOM" a lot of different things come to mind...
Blacks - FREEDOM from slavery (past and present);
Asians - FREEDOM from sweat shops;
Prisoners - FREEDOM from jail;
Africa - FREEDOM from Apartheid;
Darfur - FREEDOM from genocide;
Asia - FREEDOM from child pornography, and the list goes on.
People are constantly complaining about EVERYTHING in America. Not enough this or too much of that, but let me just say that I would rather be here in America, than to be in any other country right now! I am not in favor of war but I do honor and respect those who choose to serve our country because they are doing their duty to protect OUR country! This is THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE!!!
So in honor of "Freedom Friday" please enjoy this video...

Happy Fourth Of July!!! Happy Freedom Friday!!!
Peace, Love & Blessing!
God Bless America!

I agree wholeheartedly. I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else. Whitney sure did put her foot into that song didn't she?

Happy 4th Regina!

The thank you video is so moving.

I am against the current war in Iran. But I have a lot of respect for the women and men who are currently serving in the nation's armed forces.

Seeing that video reminded me that I have cousins who are currently enlisted to serve this nation. And I hope and pray that they will continued to be blessed with the grace of protection.

Have a blessed 4th! 04 July, 2008 15:22

Loved the "Thank you" video - its so easy to forget what some people are doing for us - I just now showed this to my 11-yr old to remind him how lucky we are...

We both realized that Whitney's rendition of the National Anthem was worthy of note for the OSF meme. However, you hit a grand slam with your additon of the 'Thank You' video. That truly captured the feeling that all of us should have about our VOLUNTEERS serving in the military. They deserve our prayers, respect and admiration...

I hope you and your family enjoyed a glorious 4th of July weekend!

Nancy has had her insulin shot,
and had lunch. I have a few minutes to write a note.
The rest of the gang are up at a friend of my daughter Carrie. They went swimming! Too much sun for Nancy! Lupus patients are not suppose to be in much sun! Besides it is Hot and humid! Glad you had a great Fourth! Thanks for your prayers! Love, Grams
