Challenger the Bald Eagle ~ This Is America!


Wild Thing's comment..........

I have lived in the greatest country in the world, and a beacon in a storm to so many around the world. To sing our anthem with tears in my eyes thinking along with the words of the song telling of the lives that paid the price for our country to be the land of the free, and see our Flag and what it stands for feeling like my heart will burst from the pride one feels that we all are able to say, " I am an American".

This video touched my heart and caused feelings to soar just as the Eagle named Challenger does around the stadium.

God bless our country and the men and women that serve in our military as they put their lives on the line every day for the Freedoms we all enjoy. And for our Veterans before them leading the way, the charge, the brotherhood of warriors.

.... Thank you John for sending this to me.

Kinda chokes you up. I'm blessed to have a pair of these magnificent birds soaring overhead on most clear days, they nest less than a quarter mile away.

Thank you John and Chrissie.
