Happy Flag Day!!!!!


The Star Spangled Banner
(The Defense of Fort McHenry) September 20, 1814
By Francis Scott Key

Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' 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?

That's a beautiful picture of our red, white, and blue. What inspired this post...Besides being a proud American?

Oh, I just remembered it was Flag Day. LOL I'm assuming that was the inspiration. :)

Have a great day!
