The Rebel Black Dot Song o' Independence Day

Matt Maher, "Woke Up In America" from The Love In Between (The Last Angry Man)

"I woke up in America for the love of God,
I woke up in America for something bigger than myself,
More than fireworks and fanfare,
More than a star-spangled banner,
You're still beautiful, America…

"You're still beautiful, America,
You're beautiful, America,
You're beautiful, America."
As I heard Mr. Maher joke about himself last night on television, as he performed at a Catholic leadership conference in Florida, as he urged the audience to dance, "I'm the whitest guy in the room. I'm from Canada!" So, I thought the inscription from Belle Isle's Peace Monument appropriate to this 4th of July R.B.D.S.O.T.D.
