What is this choice about?
I'm not an Americian, but I want to see the results
The new, improved BB has it so everybody can
read the results. You can read the results before you
vote - all the time.
Leaving aside the tune, the worst that can be said of the SSB is it's anti-British (have you read the rest of the verses?). Folks, also forget the question that ends the chorus "Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave, o'r the land of the free and the home of the brave." For many, the answer is a regretful no.
I love our national anthem. I get goose bumps every time it's played. I especially enjoy what's popularly called its fourth verse:
O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation.
Blessed with victory and peace, may our heaven-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!
AMEN:thumbsup: Whenever I sing this song, I make it a point to include this verse, also. Many people know the first verse, but have no idea there are other verses to the song, including this one with our motto. Thank you for reminding us!
absolutely not, i can't even begin to imagine a new anthem
