GC reviewing anthem decision
It's been more than a year since Goshen College began playing an instrumental version of the Star Spangled Banner before some sports, but the college's current practice could change in early June.

Being a U.S Army Veteran,I am totally appalled at the controversy over playing of the National Anthem.
For the 450 students in support of it;kudos to you for your support! For the 1800 that are against playing of the National Anthem but still enjoying the freedom that others sacrificed on your behalf;you should be ASHAMED of yourselves!!! Do you think for one minute if our nations brave troops had not fought in wars such as WW1 and WW2 and sacrificed either life or limb;that you would have had the opportunity of attending a college that has existed for 116 years? Had Germany's Hitler,Japan's Tojo, Russia's Stalin and Kruschev or any other leader of that time won because our country was Pacifist;neither you or your parents and maybe their parents ,would have ever existed! Even if they somehow would have managed to survive the onslaught of what the above leaders proposed;they and you and any children you may have been allowed to have,would have either lived under communism or been imprisoned or even killed for not following dictatorial rule!
I strongly suggest that you pull your goody good heads out of your behinds and start reading American History,talking to what veterans remain from WW2 and the Korean era and even those returning home from the current wars. Then weigh what freedoms you have today against what you may never have had and start thanking your God for everything that has been done for you by our veterans and troops. Freedom of religion is a great thing when handled properly;but when it mixes with politics and civics, it can be used has a tool by politicians and others against all of us and corrupt our core beliefs and lead to a Marxist/Lenninist state similar to what President Obama and the liberals in Washington are trying to do now. Get informed and stay alert because your Hitler's and Tojo's and Stalin's are radical Muslims and they do not care if you or I or those we love,live or die! Finally try to attend a patriotic event or visit a cemetary on Memorial Day and take in the solemness of all of those flags waving in the air on the graves of our veterans andfor one moment see if it stirs any feelings of gratitude within you!
