OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM STAR-SPANGLED BANNER

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 bomb 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?

Francis Scott Key

Once again in last night’s exiting SB game our National Anthem became a conduit for a popular singer to demonstrate his God given abilities.    

When will we learn that this song represents the heroism innate in our countrymen in a furious battle against England.   

 The musical chords and lyrics by the creator FSK, became our anthem to be a symbol of our value as citizens of our great land, demonstrated in the fact, through our flag and our Anthem, that even if battles are lost, our bravery, spirit, and resolve will never be surrendered or lost.    

In these times when we are losing sight of what made us the best Nation in earth, and are facing destructive forces from within, the singer, Chris Stapleton, used the forum as if performing in America Got Talent, instead of America Got Values. 

The national anthem has four verses which recount the day-long battle between the American and British forces referred to as the Battle of Baltimore. 

The first verse talks about the «perilous fight» which refers to the Baltimore war. Francis had been captured, and he could only see the red glares caused by the bombardment.

 The only thing that gave him hope was the sight of the Star-Spangled Banner. 

As long as the American flag was seen, the Americans believed that the British forces had not captured the fort. 

The «home of the brave» refers to the heroic act of the American forces that were fighting for their country.

After the war ended at night, Francis was not sure who had won the battle, but then when he saw the American flag still flying, he was convinced that the British were defeated. 

The anthem means that as long as the US flag is still waving America will remain a vast country of the free and the brave. 

Francis vented out on the British in the third verse. The fourth verse is fully triumphant, and it talks about the United States of America being a «heaven-rescued land.»
