Thinking about tears in the eyes during the Anthem, never had I had more tears in my eyes than I do these days upon hearing it. Its the one thing that always makes me remember my true identity as an American citizen, and patriot. It can bring us back before many terrible administrations, to remember the country that we love, and realize that it is as of yet, still not lost. I heard the Spanish version of the Anthem a few weeks ago, and it did the same. One thing I have noticed, whether the words are there, whether we can understand the words there, does not really matter. The soul of the piece is still there, and we can feel it.

I'm sorry to bum you guys out on this, but the National Anthem music isn't really genuine to America. It was stolen from the English Anthem...
