Dream the promise

The only thanks I recognize today

I don't do family celebrations any more for reasons I'm not going to get into here.

But there is one song that says more about what this particular day should be about than any other. It's Hills of America by Emerald Rose. Here's a selection from the lyrics.

They say there's a land to the west of the sunset
Where the hills are like emeralds and the streams run with gold
Where a man's hope and sweat can earn him his vision
No child cries in hunger or dies from the cold

Look away, look away to the hills of America
West of the sunset we're destined to roam
Look away, look away to the hills of America
Soon we will call them the sweet hills of home

I'm going to go lay a fire and curl up with a roast beef sandwich. No turkey for me today.
