Little Pink (or whatever color) Houses

Good afternoon everyone.

It is a gorgeous day here sunny, breezy, and not too hot or humid.

On the way to work this morning, one of my favorite songs started playing and of course I cranked up the volume and sang along. It felt great with the windows open, feeling the wind upon my skin, the music lifting my spirit.

It is called 'Little Pink Houses' by John Mellencamp. Since in this great country of ours, we can for the most part, paint our houses whatever color we wish, I put 'or whatever color' in the title of this post.

This country was founded on FREEDOM. It is somthing we've all been enjoying our whole lives. But, things are changing as bills and laws are being written and put into effect without we, the people's, knowledge or input. We are losing more and more of our freedoms. We are very concerned for our future as a nation and as individuals.

This country was founded on faith in God. Now, those who believe in God are slowly losing the freedom to do so or say anything about their faith.

I am thankful for each new day and the freedoms we are still able to enjoy.

God Bless America
Home of the Brave,
Land of the Free
Little pink houses for you and me.

Some of the lyrics are below and a link to a youtube music video of this song, with great views of this beautiful country we live in. (I wasn't able to embed the video like I have in the past.)

Well, there's people and more people
And there's winners, and there's losers
But they aint no big deal
Oh but aint that America
for you and me
Ain't that America,
we're someting to see
Ain't that America,
home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me
