    As you all know, I'm not American, but I learned something today that gave me goosebumps.

    It's not very short but definitely worth watching.

    This is a story that we as Americans learned in grade school. However, I don't know that it meant as much to us then as it should have. No matter which side of the conflict you were from you have to admire that the men who founded this union were of extraordinary character. Agree or disagree with them you have to admire their intestinal fortitude.

    I agree, although I am not from the USA I was moved and impressed by the history of your National Anthem.

    Of course, I love mine more.

    Perhaps you will enjoy this. While he was known for his humor and clean humor at that, later in life his paintings of clowns sold for many thousands of dollars. Again, I do hope you and all will enjoy it:
