I don't care what anyone says. Our National Anthem gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it. I am so grateful to be an American. In spite of all our problems, no matter how bad the economy may be, the United States of America is the best country on the planet. Only here are citizens truly and completely free to worship, free to create, free to speak--even criticize.
Our Star-Spangled Banner captures the essence of who we Americans are: free and brave and hopeful and determined and proud. Long may it wave!
