And don't even get me started on people who can't sing and still tried...
This anthem stirs up emotion and leaves us with swelled pride. Pride in a country that tries its best. Even when we are not all on the same page or unhappy with situations in the United States, we can count on that song to unite us, even if for a moment. I wonder if Francis Scott Key knew that he penned emotions that night which would follow us through all of these years?
It's words have always misted my eyes.
I do love this country of mine...
O! thus be it ever, when free men shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Do you have a favorite patriotic song?
Have a safe and Happy 4Th of July! Fireworks oh yeah!!
