Happy Birthday, America! Here's my birthday wish, from the words of your anthem:
"Blest with victory and peace, may the heaven-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation"
- The Star-Spangled Banner
As it has been written, "...Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great."
