The Fourth of July: A Letter Overseas

Today is the day of the Red, White, and Blue

Today is the day I think of you

You are my soldier, my protector, and my hero

You were watching the day World Trade Center became “Ground Zero”

You were there for the days after the attack

And now, I know you’re still in Iraq

I need you to know that we still care

That you are always in our prayers

Today is the Fourth of July

And though the fireworks create a lovely view

Today is the day I'll think of our nation’s pride

And tonight is the night I'll think of you.
