NPR's series "American Anthem" is striking a chord across the country.
Murphysboro's Gary Hart says "an 'anthem' is more than a song. An anthem is the right song heard by the right person and the right time in the right circumstances."
To that end, Hart has crafted his own "American Anthem," and shared it with us.
