The Star Spangled Banner Words Written by Francis Scott Key Music by John Stafford Smith O’ say can you see by the dawn’s early light what so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming, whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight o’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming. And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave. • The Pledge of Allegiance Words by Francis Bellamy I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. • Flag Etiquette During the rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present, except those in uniform, should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should render the military salute at the first note of the anthem and retain this position until the last note. When the flag is not displayed, those present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed there.

America faces extraordinary challenges and the decision we make for president will determine the path of our country for future generations. The 2012 Republican National Convention will present Mitt Romney’s vision for the country – one where everyone has the opportunity to achieve his or her dreams. Mitt Romney has a proven record of leadership, achievement, and courage to make hard choices and attain what many thought unattainable. Each night, the Republican National Convention will hear from people concerned about the future of our country and focus on Mitt Romney’s plan to get America working again.

Monday, August 27 – We Can Do Better  Tuesday, August 28 – We Built It  Wednesday, August 29 – We Can Change It  Thursday, August 30 – We Believe in America

Through the speakers, films, live remotes, entertainment and other program elements, Americans of every background will learn more about Mitt Romney and how he is uniquely qualified with the experience and determination to lead this country and help everyone realize the American dream.
