Ignatius Piazza: The Moving Story Behind the National Anthem
August 17th, 2009
We all know the words to the National Anthem, but how many of you know the true story behind those words?
Sadly, the memory of the noble and heroic actions of those who won our freedom so many years ago becomes more diluted with each passing generation.
Let’s revive the spirit of our Founding Fathers who fought so gallantly, against all odds, to defeat the greatest military power in the world at that time.
Let’s educate our younger Americans who only know the National Anthem as, “That song they sing at baseball games” so they too stand proudly and shed a tear of gratitude for their freedom, as we do, when we hear the words that were penned during the darkest hour of our county’s birth.
Please spread this very emotionally moving and educational rendition of our National Anthem throughout the Internet so all Americans can FULLY appreciate our National Anthem.
