Editor’s Note: Regular readers know that every once in a while I receive an email with an anonymous source, and yet the content is so good and resonates so completely with my feelings on a topic, that I’m compelled to share. This is one such email. To the author, whoever you are, thank-you for writing what millions of us our thinking. God bless our veterans and armed forces. God Bless America. Tami Jackson

****************

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
