Sunday Morning

I had to write an entry today and share a story that's in the local Sunday paper.  There's a man named Howard Kim, here in town, who after 9-11-01 wrote 2 more verses to our National Anthem.  The story states that this man, a Vietnam veteran, worked out his grief over the events of that horrible day by walking along Tacoma's beautiful water front and writing a tribute to our country,and for all of us shocked and stunned by what happened at the hands of those terriorists.  I'm going to add the link to the story...hoping that you will read it for yourselves.  I believe that these two added verses should become permanently and officially part of our National Anthem "America the Beautiful."  What do you think ?
