The Star Spangled Banner

This is an audio track...Happy 4th of July everyone...

Do you know the meaning of the words in our national anthem? We've all sung them a thousand times or more ..... we hear this anthem sung at the beginning of sporting events and see the fighter-jets do a flyby and we get all choked up. But .... do you know the story about the events which led up to Francis Scott Key's inspiration for the lyrics? Once you've listened to this story, you will understand and hopefully appreciate them like never before.

As Americans, we should know this story and we must never forget those who fought (and continue to fight and sacrifice) for our freedom and independence.
