I am writing you now to ask you to introduce legislation to change our National Anthem from "The Star Spangled Banner" to Samuel Ward's "America the Beautiful" Our current anthem's melody is a former British drinking song. It is a terrible melody and extremely difficult to sing and play. The poem by Francis Scott Key also seems to glorify war. Ward's melody is beautiful, easy to sing, and glorifies the beauty of our nation, not our victory in a war. So many other nations have much better anthems than we do, the well written Samuel Ward piece is in this category of wonderful music. The current anthem is not. Any musician will tell you that. I realize that, with all the problems we are facing in our nation today, this may seem to be a trivial issue. However, the anthem is important to our standing in the world and I think we have been poorly represented by the current anthem. I hope you will consider introducing this legislation in congress..
