July 4th. I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy, Yankee Doodle Do Or Die. A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam, born on the fourth of July. That is a lyric from a great song by George H. Cohen, the famous Broadway star of a century ago. It might be stretching it but I feel like a Yankee Doodle Dandy too and I was born on the fifth of July 1929. I have seen a lot of America since then, all of our fifty states, many a number of times, and I never cease to stand in awe at the beauty of America. I pray that there will be peace again in this world. May God continue to bless America and keep our troops from harm.
