President’s Day Weekend. I only discovered that because I mentioned to someone I was going skiing on Monday to avoid the crowds and they proceeded to burst my bubble with the news that Monday is a holiday – probably not a good day for avoiding crowds on the ski slope.
So in honor of this holiday, under the circumstances, we decided an appropriate gesture would be to provide a new verse for The Star Spangled Banner – sort of an updated verse that expands on the verse we are familiar with. So here it is, performed from the balcony of the Whitehouse.
The New Verse for the National Anthem
With our banner raised high, we must ponder a choice
Those who truly are free, offer freedom with grace
Those who truly are brave. will invite every voice
No matter their creed, and no matter their race
For this flag bears the theme of our country’s great dream
if we follow its course, then our past we redeem
and then we shall witness the flag of our land
as the truth and the power of Founder’s great plan
