Our country was attacked by another country

330px-Ft._Henry_bombardement_1814

From the  3rd to the14th this country

Was in a battle to save our land, for all of her citizens!

On September 14th, 1814,

Because of the Major Battles

with our enemy,

and the burning of Washington.

The Flag was still standing at our fort in Baltimore

after a superior country

(The British Empire),

attacked our young country.

The ‘Star Spangle Banner’

has nothing to do with,

Black, Blue, Gray, Red, Brown, While, or Yellow

Lives Matter!

It has everything to do our first

and

only defense of our country!

 

Lives of all colors died or were wounded during the attack.

 

Many of our citizens (Black and White) lost everything in this uncalled for attack!

 

O! say can you see?

Writing to the country, after a viscous attack by the British Empire.

 

By the dawn’s early light,

Sunrise the next day.

 

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,

We are happy to report that at dawns first light,

 

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,

Both Fort American Flags were still standing.

 

This means the Americans, both Black and While were still alive and fighting together against their enemy!

 

I stand and salute our flag every day.

Not just because I was in a war.

Not just to thank God and my follower Americans of all race and colors, that I escaped my turn with no

‘physical harm’!

 

I stand for all of those ‘Millions’ of our “Warriors” that served before me.

 

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!

 

The Warriors of all race and color is our power!

 

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto:

‘In God is our trust.’

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

 

Citizens of this country are all free,

so wave your flag in pride.

“I Kneel to the Almighty in Heaven Above”

and

“In God I Do Trust!”

O! 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?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep,

Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,

What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,

As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?

Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,

In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:

‘Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,

A home and a country, should leave us no more?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation.

Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
