Neil Diamond – America

Original video of Neil Diamond performing America from The Jazz Singer, presented here remastered in clean DTS Digital Sound from the limited edition 25th Anniversary release of The Jazz Singer

This is my favorite America themed song. This is a powerful statement about what it is to come to America for opportunity and freedom.

Freedom

As America celebrates its freedom we must insure that every person is indeed free to be who they were created to be. Freedom means having a responsibility to one another. People must have the liberty to worship, live and love in the manner they choose. When one group seeks to deny freedoms others enjoy then we all are at risk.

Freedoms come at a cost and its one we all must be willing to pay and it should never be used to exploit people for financial gain. Many in the world have the right to express themselves while others must go underground to seek the change they want to see. I hope for people of all walks of life they will one day be free to be who they are meant to be.

“When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.
Charles Evans Hughes

A Ramble on America

I salute those who embody the spirit of America by doing things to make life better for everyone. To my fellow Americans who follow the beat of a different drummer you rock. We are made greater by the nerds and geeks and peacemakers who aren’t afraid to be themselves. Your sacrifice of time, talent and treasure is very important and appreciated. Grace and peace to everyone today.
