America the Beautiful

June 28, 2009

In this last week before our July 4th holiday and with all the sad sad stories swirling around the demise of Michael Jackson, I couldn’t think of a better artist than Ray Charles to remind me of what America is all about.

He too has gone to his peace, but listen closely to the words. Listen closely to the singing in his heart. An American artist, Ray Charles, an American that reminds all of us how blessed we are to have the diversity, the intelligence, and the talent to sing of our countries greatness.

God bless Ray Charles. God bless America.
