Read Carefully The Omitted Verses of America’s National Anthem and then “TAKE TO THE KNEE” with Colin Kaepernick!

The Forgotten Verses

While the first verse of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is widely known by the American public, the last three verses are generally omitted in performances. Here are all the four verses, as they were written 200 years ago by Key:

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner—O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O’ deluded African Americans this nation never was nor is now your home…nor was this song written with you in mind or heart…

On This 911 Day of Prayer And Remembrance of the 2,996, Precious American Lives Lost…Let Us Also Remember…

and pray for the souls of:

♥ the millions of Native Americans…men…women…and children slaughtered in the bloody massacre called the “discovery of America…”

♥ the more than 200,00 men women and children of Nagasaki and Hiroshima evaporated by the only nation in the history of the planet to exterminate human life with the atomic bomb in order to protect “democracy and the free world…”

♥ the millions…too numerable to count of Africans… slaughtered, enslaved, tortured…lynched and otherwise dehumanized…both abroad and on these American shores…upon whose bloodied bodies and wretched souls this “great nation” was built…

♥ the millions upon millions of human lives lost in wars…past and present…wars based on American lies, deceit and subterfuge…wars declared in the name of American greed and America’s unrelenting determination to maintain world domination and global corporate power…no matter what…

♥ the unknown number of heads-of-states…past and present…assassinated by America’s CIA…in order to maintain American global control and dominance…

♥ the thousands of unarmed African American men…women…and yes…children…present and past…some within the illusory safety of their homes…murdered by the American Police Force

♥ the nearly 70,000 African American men…women…and yes…children…now incarcerated in a modern system of state and corporate sponsored slavery…America…now the world leader in the number of its citizens behind bars…

and may we never cease remembering John Kennedy…Martin Luther King…Robert Kennedy…men who would have redirected the course of this nation from its path of evil for the sake of global dominance…to one of peace…love…unity…and brotherhood among all men…

apparently, America has not yet learned anything from the tragedy of 911…

let us all then pray that we open our eyes as one people united against evil…before we are all consumed by FIRE from the West…and FLOODS…from the East…

let us pray that America awakens and repents…

let us pray for the awakening of a National Conscience…and for the beginning of a true adherence to the Basic Principles of Christian Brotherhood and Peace that Americans so blithely mouth but have never followed…or demanded of those men in high places who continue to lie, plunder and murder…in the name POWER and the Almighty Dollar

That is my prayer for America on this Tuesday, September 11, 2018…this day of remembrance…

Remembering The Murders Of Three Great Men…

Golden Sunset – Photo by Toni Roberts

Often in the evening, I sit at my altar before the magnificence of this view to watch the sun as it sets. Last night as I watched the setting sun, I remembered that we were coming up on the anniversary of the murder of Bobby Kennedy on June 5, 1968. Three the good men: Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King and President Jack Kennedy all of whom, at a key point in our history, would have most certainly turned the tide of future events (the election of the current President among them). All three of these men were at the verge of bringing real unity to the country in times of great racial upheaval. All three preached a unifying, holistic message. And with the death of the last of these crusaders for peace and equality, the way was made clear for the election of evil (Richard Nixon) into the White House. We have never, as a nation found our way back to the high goals and ideals of these three men. Obama, an African American in a racially divided nation never stood a chance.

And look at who’s leading us now. A hate-filled, hate-spewing, bigoted, sexist, racist, under-educated, blow-hard. The murderous enemies of the Fallen Trinity of Peace and Unification have won. Or so it would appear. Those who pull the “behind-the-scene-strings” have us exactly where they need us to remain: hating one another; racially and religiously divided; and unwilling or unable to listen to each other. Just look at us. Let us take a long, hard look at ourselves. Are we not individually and collectively better than this?

What are We, the People, going to do now? How long will we remain blind sheep following the hatred-spewing messages of those leading us to our own slaughter? And to the death of all that is good and holy and honorable in this nation. How long will we sleep walk as we are led by evil into the death of a nation that still has the potential of serving as a shining example to the rest of the world of a united people. United not by skin color, ethnicity or religion but by our common humanity.  In the final analysis, this is still—although perhaps not for long—a democracy…for, by and of the people.

And so, the next move is up to us, the people. We can still make this nation a shining example of peace, justice, unity and love in memory of three truly great men: President John Kennedy, Prophet Martin Luther King and most the honorable, Senator Bobby Kennedy; the blood of all three sacrificed at the altar of Evil.

Our only remaining powers are: (1) the exercise of our right to VOTE in the next elections (2) to encourage every eighteen-year-old we know to VOTE (3) those of you who are so inclined…run for office in your community. Let us change the face of politics.

Divided…
