Today is the bicentennial of our nation’s anthem, the Star Spangled Banner written by Francis Scott Key on September 14, 1814 as he watched the shelling of Ft. McHenry by the British Navy in Baltimore harbor. The American flag stands as a global symbol of liberty and freedom for all people — a beacon. Today we remember what Key saw 200 years ago, men defending the honor of our nation and its flag during the final days of the War of 1812. The flag flew then and it continues to fly today.
And on this 200th anniversary celebration I can’t think of any better rendition of our National Anthem than that performed by the angelic voice of Whitney Houston at the 1991 Super Bowl in Tampa Florida. This we’ll defend.
