Emotional impact: 10-year-old wows with national anthem, brings tears to grown men

From early age, children should be taught to respect their country. They should especially be taught how to appreciate the sacrifice of those who fought for the freedom we enjoy today.

One way of paying tribute to the courageous men and women, and to our country, is standing during the National Anthem. Unfortunately, not many youngsters do that nowadays.

The Star Spangled Banner served as the hymns of U.S. officialdom before 1931 and for those of you not familiar with its origins, the lyrics come from the Defence of Fort M’Henry, a poem written in September 1814 by amateur poet Francis Scott Key.
