Today's Prompt: Today in 1814, Francis Scott Key writes The Star-Spangled Banner. Americans sing this at most events, but do we really ever sing anything more than the first verse? Reflect on the rest of the song and how it makes you feel about America.
For those of you who aren't American, choose a song that your countries uses and see if you sing all the verses. If not, reflect on the verses that are not sung.
EVENT: The Summer Reading Challenge has ended and if you completed it, with proof, make sure to e-mail me your mailing address at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you the prize you won for completing the challenge! Everyone who participated did such an amazing job. Don't forget that September's reading challenge is to continue on with the summer reading challenge if you haven't finished OR to read a Stephen King novel (preferably Duma Key, but whatever floats your boat).
NOTE: Please submit your ideas for prompts. They will definitely be used. With it being the year anniversary month, start noticing some of our official trends revisited, such as Ben and Jerry's Day and Stephen King Day (Sept 21).
IMPORTANT HOUSEKEEPING INFORMATION: Probably isn't going to completely back-date all of August.
Don't forget to add Dailies to your Interests.
