Since Trump has taken office, everywhere you look, there’s protests and the burning of our nation’s flag.  It is clear to me, the people who burn our flag, have no concept of what our flag symbolizes.  Then I started to think… hmmm… maybe these protesters need some busy work… like being drafted!  They appear to have WAY too much time on their hands and have no clue as to the reality of their actions.  But, when you think about it, shouldn’t that sentimental feeling of patriotism begin when they started grade school?  Sentiments that have long been forgotten?  

Except if you are someone who is affiliated with the government or whistle Dixie.   So… where do we start?  Children are not born with patriotism.  How do we instill patriotism within our children?  By bringing back the Pledge of Allegiance in all schools and not just reciting, but explaining, why it’s being stated.  Red Skelton was an American entertainer best known for his national radio and television acts between 1937 and 1971, and was host of a television program.   He came out with a version of the Pledge of Allegiance that breaks down its very meaning.  This pledge had made its CBS televised debut in 1969.

It was a time when many families gathered around the television to watch family entertainment such as, The Red Skelton Show.  There was no need to schedule family night, as some of us do today, because nearly every night was family night; family unity was still very much a part of Americana values.  Skelton’s video is a great tool for parents to utilize when explaining the meaning of each verse to a young child’s mind. 

It must be implanted, much like a seed, to be fertilized with Americana dreams and ideology, and to flourish with the basic understanding and application of our constitutional rights.  Watching this video, one can’t help but wonder, what was going on within our country that Red Skelton should want to invigorate patriotism?  Was it much like we are experiencing today?  Were there massive protests? 

When you compare both eras, there were similarities.  Without a doubt, Obama's had promoted that 60’s hatred of racial divide and detestation toward police.  Back in the 60’s, our nation was in a civil turmoil compounded by an oncoming war with Vietnam. 

And among the protesting arose a group of people known as hippies, who pushed for peace and love, not hate, as they chanted, “Give Peace a Chance” and, “Make Love, not War.” 

Attitudes toward our soldiers and veterans had been badly disconnected.  During those days filled with hatred for skin color, police and soldiers, it became paramount to bring our nation together.  That sense of unity, needs to occur today.  



Along with the Pledge of Allegiance is our national anthem, The Star Spangled-Banner. But, do people really know the story behind our anthem which made it 
uniquely American? I’m willing to bet most children have no clue about the history behind the song… today, it’s more foreign than an immigrant.

During the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key was sent on a mission by President James Madison to negotiate the release of a prisoner located in Baltimore.  He boarded an American sloop sailing to a British ship, Tonnant, which had been surrounded by a 50-ship fleet, where he and a fellow lawyer, secured the prisoner’s release.  However, there was one condition … they could not go ashore until AFTER the British attacked Baltimore.  The British admiral impressed upon those at Fort McHenry to give up, it would be futile to fight, but they refused.  So, an agreement was made.  The British, feeling very secure they would win the battle, agreed that if the flag was seen still flying by morning, the British would release ALL prisoners they had on board.  Returning to the American sloop under British escort, Key witnessed the bombardment, “o’er the ramparts we watched.”  Throughout the night, the British hit Fort McHenry with everything they had, firing 1,500 – 1,800 rounds which showed little impact.  Amid this battle from time to time, Key had to report to the prisoners below deck, if the “flag was still there,” and each time, the answer was a resounding, yes!  The British then decided to attempt a night attack, but as 1,200 soldiers sat in row boats going up the Middle Branch… under the belief they were safely hidden within the darkness of night… signal rockets were fired which gave away their position.  Imagine sitting in a row boat, being picked off like sitting ducks.  Under intense crossfire from Forts Covington and Babcock, the British suffered heavy casualties and withdrew.  Fort McHenry’s garrison commander, Major Armistead, possessed a composite force of around 1,000 men; many of whom were women and children.   In the midst of the battle, a shell struck the fort's unprotected gunpowder stock pile, but fortunately, it failed to explode.  To prevent another potential for disaster, Armistead had the supply distributed to safer locations. 

During the fierce bombardment there was also a raging thunderstorm.  Because the woolen garrison American flag was massive, when wet, it could easily snap a flag pole so sometime during the night, the flag was replaced by a smaller flag, but by morning, when the rain subsided and the sun came shining through, the garrison flag had been replaced.  When Key awoke that morning, peering through a spyglass, he was surprised to see the garrison flag still flying … and so were the British!  It was then that Key began composing what will be known today as a legacy from the War of 1812, describing the bravery of a battle that beat all odds.  What was originally penned contained 4 verses and entitled, “Defence of Fort M’Henry.”   What was discovered after the British conceded the battle, had been bodies of some of the fallen found around the base of the flag pole.  You see, each time the flag went down, someone brave hoisted it back up and their body prevented the flag pole from toppling over… they never gave up, even during one of the most formidable, intimidating times the fort had ever faced.  Miraculously, the attack on Fort McHenry cost Armistead's garrison only 4 lives and 24 wounded.  British losses were around 330 killed, wounded, and captured, most of which occurred during the attempt to move up the Middle Branch. The successful defense at Fort McHenry heard throughout the land, the repeated glory of how the brave and fearless stood their ground… aided in restoring American pride. 

O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' 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?

Key gave the poem to his brother-in-law, Judge Joseph H. Nicholson, who discovered the words fit well to a popular 1775 pub song, “To Anacreon in Heaven.” Ironically, Key had used that song to accompany an 1805 poem, "When the Warrior Returns,” which he had written in honor of Barbary War naval heroes; the poem also referenced a star-spangled flag. 

Judge Nicholson gave his discovery to a Baltimore music store who printed the score from that 1775 song along with Key’s penned words as sheet music, and renamed it, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”  President Woodrow Wilson liked the song so much, by way of executive order, had the song played at all military ceremonies.   On March 3, 1931, after 40 prior attempts, Congress finally voted, The Star-Spangled Banner, as our national anthem.   After hearing of this song’s history, how can any American deny it’s worthiness to represent a nation when it was penned in the middle of a powerful moment in history?

As Americans, what can we offer a fallen warrior as a show of honor and a display of respect once they’ve paid the ultimate sacrifice?

When I was in my “tween years”, our home was an apartment located on an Army base.  Yes, I’m an Army brat.  Every evening from a distance, I could hear the mournful sound of a bugler playing a song, TAPS.  The song was a consideration by Captain John Francis Tidball who wanted to give a corporal he had known and deeply respected, a full honors funeral, but was not permitted to use a 3 gun salute.  It was then he came up with the idea of playing Taps, and he decided to have it 

played at every military funeral.  It is a bugle/trumpet song which is played at flag ceremonies; nightly at military installations to indicate “lights out;” by Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts at the end of an evening event such as a campfire gatherings; and since 1884… at military funerals.  Taps is also sounded during each of the military wreath ceremonies conducted at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, including the ones held on Memorial Day.  And, what better way to honor American service members, who have died when an identity of their remains cannot be made, than a memorial recognized as The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier located in Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.  This is why a sacrifice so great… commands respect. 

These are all the values needed to be instilled within our children today because one day, they will be leading this nation as we sit back and remember when…
