All-American Baby Girl

Our little Ava was born after my dear Grandpa Anderson (my Mom's Papa) passed away 2 years ago...she would have absolutely adored him.  And I know he would have loved to see his sweet, All-American grandbaby girl, he was one of the most patriotic men I know! He was also quite the poet, and below is a beautiful poem he wrote, perfect for this 4th of July.
Happy Independence Day everyone!

Our flag has stood these many years,
Glorious symbol divine,
Banner majestic hoisted toward heaven,
Freedom's clarion call.
A call to free men,
To brave men, all,
That the choicest of all blessings
May never fall.
Only the patriotism
Of modern Patrick Henrys
And Paul Reveres
Will assure that freedom
In unborn years.
The sacrifices of patriots of old
Will serve our liberty
Only if we are so bold
As to carry its torch today,
To reject apathy,
And light its way!
by EksAyn Anderson
