    I saw people laughing
    Children playing
    The great Bald Eagle
    So strong as it flies
    An American Saturday
    Complete with beautiful and spacious skies

    I saw yard sales and football games
    I saw purple mountains majesty
    Mixed with amber waves of grain

    Saturday’s America
    Still feeling God’s grace
    Every city
    Every river and hilltop
    America is free
    Brotherhood to be the light
    Forever shinning on her seas

    Thank you for sharing/spreading your positive vibrations at a time when people's hearts are failing and fainting from lack of faith and hope.
