Our National Anthem

I think most of us listen to the Star Spangled Banner being sung, and pay more attention to how the singer sounds than what is actually being said. You have to listen to listen this. Listen to the words. You may have never really heard them before. The guy who does this narrative sounds a little like Jack Webb (Joe Friday of Dragnet), but the story he recites is moving and emotional. It throws a whole new light on the National Anthem and what it meant to those involved that special night. Just listen and understand, this is what it means to be an American.
