    Thank you for pointing out this fact that bloggers here before you didn't seem to realize, that Rev. Lowery started his prayer with the powerful words of the unofficial national anthem of African-Americans.

    It's a beautiful hymn with powerful words and a gorgeous melody. Yes, it is a challenge to learn that melody, but like many other of the finer things of life, the difficulty makes it only more beautiful.

    It too wish it could have been played and sung somewhere during these very special days. It's a great anthem that we white folks could easily learn to love.
