Our Flag Was Still There

The Star Spangled Banner
The National Anthem of the
United States of America  
 
Oh, say, can you see,
by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed
at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched,
were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
that our flag was still there.
Oh say, does that star-spangled
banner yet wave
Over the land of the free
and the home of the brave?

  1. Freedom... priceless! The price paid, so much higher than we can ever count. We are a grateful nation. We are proud of those who came to rescue, and those who died trying.
