I just stumbled over this, it moved me very near to tears, and I have to share it with you–England’s Jerusalem, billed as “a candidate for an English national anthem.”
Look, I’m not English, what do I know from England? But if this music and these pictures can’t move you to love England, your heart is running low on fuel. It’s s0 beautiful!
There is nothing wrong, nothing “racist,” nothing “hateful” about loving your country, loving it for its wholly unique qualities, loving it for what it is, and has been, and yet could be.
They can take that “citizen of the world” poohbah and stick it where the sun don’t shine.
