No Sheeples Here: Lewis

No Sheeples Here: Lewis

Sunday, June 06, 2010

Herman Cain led a question and answer session at a Douglas County, Georgia Tea Party when a young woman asked him about the attacks by the Left on the Judeo-Christian heritage in America. He addressed her question, then went to the last question of the night. The crowd could not have anticipated what would happen next.

Lewis, a former Marine, brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat with his wondrous rendition of the fourth verse of the Star Spangled Banner. If you are not moved by his love of country, then you have no heart.

Here are the words to the fourth verse:

Oh! Thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Upon completion of the song, Lewis turned and hurried away, shaking a few hands that were thrust toward him as he walked. He quickly blended into the crowd, not to be seen again.
