Nothing says America better than our National Anthem, and apparently from the day it was written in 1814, until it became our official anthem in 1931, most Americans must have agreed that we were a nation under the divine hand and protection of God. Even giving praise to the Creator for the Fort Henry victory and all victories since then. When we think of the anthem, we must never forget that the lyrics come from "Defence of Fort McHenry," a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. The Star-Spangled Banner" was recognized for official use by the Navy in 1889, and by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916, and was made the national anthem by a congressional resolution on March 3, 1931 [/B](46 Stat. 1508, codified at 36 U.S.C. § 301), which were signed by President Herbert Hoover. (courtesy of Wikipedia) With that little peice of history in mind, I'd like to remind you of the oft neglected second verse of our anthem. A verse that doesn't mince its words when it comes to God and this nation being under God's favor.

I think so. What do you think?
