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
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.
