The National Anthem explained …

Currently the NFL is disrespecting the American Flag and the National Anthem. Someone posted this YouTube video on Twitter with a suggestion that the football players should be reminded why we revere the Flag and memorialize all the Americans who have died to protect the Freedoms we enjoy – unlike any other country.

Those of us who are older studied American History in high school. I’m not sure they’re teaching it anymore. This vid is a good refresher course for us and a good lesson for younger people. It reminds us why we stand for the National Anthem and put our right hand over our heart.

One quote in the video is from George Washington. I think it is appropriate given what the overpaid football players are doing.

“The thing that sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the World is he will die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees.”

Most Patriots will get misty eyes as they watch the video. It makes us proud of this GREAT COUNTRY. If you’re not affected by the vid perhaps you might find another country more to your liking. As we use to say Love It or Leave It!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
