A Song For Today

Over at, Professor Reynolds is noting that at the Flight 93 memorial, they sang "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" not "Amazing Grace." No surprise. Both are powerful songs, but one is a song of just war, and there is nothing more appropriate today, and for the next few months. I found this Lee Greenwood recording of it on this site--and even with his Southern accent, it is powerful. (For reasons that I don't understand, the owner of was upset with me linking directly to the song, and asked me to copy the file to my site, so that's what I did.)

The lyrics can be found at the University of Oklahoma Law School -- worth reading and contemplating on a day when we remember the thousands dead, and the costs of the war that is to come.
