Jay Kirk started this petition to President Trump.

Our current national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” is sorely out of date, and not much fun to sing. It is also jingoistic and was written by a lawyer. Unlike Francis Scott Key, Solomon Burke was an actual song-writer, and "Diamond in your Mind" is fun to sing. It is appropriately melancholic, but the message is positive. "The Star-Spangled Banner" was made the national anthem after President Woodrow Wilson signed an executive order in 1916, though it was not until 1931 that Congress passed an act confirming Wilson's order. It is likely if President Trump signed an executive order today making "Diamond in Your Mind" the new national anthem, that Congress would confirm that decision much more quickly, making the change a significant and pivotal moment of healing for our nation's divided spirit.
