The “Star Spangled-Banner” As You’ve Never Heard It
Submitted by Parthens
This brought tears of astonished appreciation for all the people who died to prepare America for so many great things, the greatest of which was the revelation that Mary Glover received. Were it not for the sacrifice of so many forgotten soldiers who died discerning the rights of man, that revelation would have been suppressed for possibly centuries, deferred by error’s despotism, silenced by the noisy distractions and cravings of personal sense.
Let me never forget what these warriors went through!
Exodus 4:2 “…that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the LORD.”
Deuteronomy 4:9 – “Only be careful, and watch [!] yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.” [This gives me a new perspective on what it means to “watch”!]
Would God that American schools would teach American history in a “new and living way,” instead of making it such a dull, sleep-inducing recitation/regurgitation exercise so devoid of life, truth, love!
