Once again the Placer Pops Chorale gave an outstanding performance entitled, ?Celebrate the Glory of America.? It was held at the Auburn Library Garden Theater. They perform every year. If you weren?t there, look for it next year. This beautiful concert was a tribute to our Armed Forces, and such a special reminder of the pride we can feel to be Americans. Thank God for this land of the free and home of the many brave that have fought, died and those who live with us still. Many of the men and women in the different branches of the Armed Forces that were at the concert were asked to stand as this tribute was played. We can?t thank them enough for their part in keeping our country free. It was such a patriotic demonstration that it seemed to affect everyone, regardless of their age! We were reminded of what Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story (1811-1845) said, ?Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity (descendants) all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.? May we truly thank God as we celebrate this Fourth of July, our Independence Day. God bless America, land that I love and am so proud to call my home! ELLY DERR, Auburn
