O’ Say Can You See?

Published June 5, 2015 by lynn k scott

Today marks one week until my sister’s third angel-versary of losing her breast cancer battle.  One thing, of many, that I will always remind me of my sister, is her love of the United States of America.

After listening to Madison Rising’s version of the “Star Spangled Banner”, another video about the our National Anthem started playing.  I continued to listen to it because I liked the way it was presented.  I liked it so much, I will incorporate it into my daughter’s history lesson next year.

While I realize there are few inaccuracies in this story, it gives the general idea of how the song came to be.  It symbolized an important time in American history.  Strangely, it provided comfort.  It reminded me of Kathi and her patriotic spirit.

The video is just under 12 minutes long.  Enjoy the story and our history. Remember, the next time you hear our National Anthem, please stop what you are doing, remove your hat, stand, place your hand over your heart and remain silent until the song is completed.

I for one, am proud to be an American.
