I have to admit, I love the National Anthem. It's hard for me to understand people who complain that the words are 'too hard', or not 'memorable'. They are powerful verses that paint a picture that helps us understand the price paid for our freedom in this country.
These are my two favorite renditions of a song that evokes the pleasure and the pain of patriotism and the majestic hopes of the founding fathers.
Happy Fourth to you all!
