OK

The Dells, that classic soul group has created a new version of the Star Spangled Banner;

I thought I would share it with everyone here in honor of African American History Month:

I have to admit that I am still adjusting to singing this song and really meaning it.  For the first time, I can sing it and know that it means something for me and my family, my people.

For so long, I would not say the pledge, I would not put my hand over my heart and sing this song with meaning.  

I can now.....but it still feels strange,.....but what a relief to do so.   I know we have many hurdles ahead, but i am still adjusting to the meaning of our new president.

Peace.
