AMERICA, THE BEAUTIFUL

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood - and sisterhood
From sea to shining sea!

👏👏👏

Superbowl Party at Kara Danver’s Apartment:

  • Maggie is curled up in Alex’s arms on the couch
  • Alex is way too into the game but Maggie finds it cute how excited she gets when her team scores a touchdown
  • Kara is downing pizza and pot stickers as she had to wait all day to eat it
  • Lena is amazed at Kara’s eating ability – tacos next? ;)
  • James is explaining the game to a very uninterested Cat Grant
  • Cat is analyzing Kira’s apartment and nods in approval
  • Lucy is third wheeling it with the couples on the couches but doesn’t care as she’s pumped for her team to kick ass
  • J’onn and M’gann are chatting about how
  • Mon-el is out drinking Winn again
  • Winn is excited for the half-time show if he makes it or is already passed out on the floor
  • Everyone is drinking beer, wine or hard liquor
  • Everyone made a bet on who will win the game tonight

Who do you think will be the Superbowl champion? Patriots or Falcons

Well she did call this on herself. Everyone is so mad at her she deleted the video and issued an apology. She need a break from SM, I admire her passion but what she said Isn’t cool and anyone who thinks it is seriously need to reevaluate your thinking. Sure US is in a state that shouldn’t be ignored but people need an escape to feel free and its like she passed judgment on them for enjoying that and that’s not cool Lauren
