It is this time of year when we celebrate our country’s birth and heritage. As we fire up our grills and toast to another birthday, 246 to be exact, let us be mindful of each other and hope for peace and happiness until our next birthday.
Happy 4th from all of us at Accurate Pest Control and Nuisance Wildlife.
Please enjoy a clip from the poem America the Beautiful:
America the Beautiful
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
by Katherine Lee Bates; (1859-1929) Inspired by a trip to Pikes Peak in 1893, Katherine Lee Bates
wrote the poem America the Beautiful. Her poem first appeared in print on July 4, 1895 in The
Congregationalist, a weekly journal. Ms. Bates revised the lyrics in 1904 and again in 1913.
