Watch-It Wednesday: God Save Our American States!

It's Independence Day. A day of reflection, in our house. A day when we remember and sing the praises of those heroes who molded, believed in, worked for, and died for our country. A day when we remember and praise the LORD for His hand in our nation's birth, and when we pray that He would continue to work great and mighty things for our land in this day.

Below is an excerpt from the mini-series John Adams. One thing that strikes me after the votes are cast is the silence. The men don't cheer, or huzzah, or applaud - they sit for a moment, overwhelmed with the magnitude and solemnity of the decision they have just made. My heart feels like bursting each time I watch this clip...

Happy Independence Day! May God save our American states!
