The program closed in song with “America’s Tears.”

“Sometimes I think about America; about her struggles through the years. I think of people who did what they had to do with the strength to act through their fears.

Sometimes I think about her future and her past. I know I’m blessed to be living in liberty and in a land where freedom will last. For the heroes. For the patriots. For the Soldiers. For all the pioneers. I will always be an American and I’ll always cry American tears.”
