Neil Diamond

What sort of an upside down, too much pizza after midnight dreaming, cray-cray world IS it that I am about to praise Neil Diamond??
Neil Diamond had it right. Neil Diamond brought stadiums of Americans to their feet, stomping and clapping and singing along. Tears in eyes. Patriotic hearts full to bursting with prixe because this was /us/, We, so beautifully described.

We'vs been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang onto a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They're coming to America
Never looking back again
They're coming to America

To a new and a shining place
Make our bed and we'll say our grace
Freedom's light burning warm
Freedom's light burning warm

...My country tis of thee
Sweet land of Liberty
Of thee I sing
Of thee I sing

// This song. This was America, this IS America and it will BE America again.

I know. I know how fragile this is. I understand one more attack and we may fall into a tizzy. BUT /I/ refuse to be cowed by fear flung at me by outside sources or inside sources. I refuse to surrender America.
I. Will. Fight.

    This is how you DO it "How will I find you at the party?" "I'll be the only one on the stairs. Just me." Drama QUEEN. All she needs is police…
