Dear America, 

Land of the free,

Will you be struck down 

By fear,

By the forces crushing your liberty?

Or will you be crucified

By the powers of greed?

O say can you see?

By the dawn’s early light

Yours and the world's plight?

Can you give proof though the night

That the star spangled banner yet wave-


In the home of the brave?

  “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”        ...
