A Land That's Free

This year's long Independence Day weekend calls for a patriotic tune for the "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend."

Below is an old film clip featuring the late great Kate Smith performing the Irving Berlin classic "God Bless America." It's complete with the seldom-heard first stanza:

"While the storm clouds gather
Far across the sea
Let us swear allegiance
To a land that's free
Let us all be grateful
For a land so fair
As we raise our voices
In a solemn prayer ... "
