: Something we can agree on?

At the Pittsburgh Symphony's show Saturday night, the opening piece was none other than the National Anthem. It was quite moving to hear a full symphonic version in an indoor venue, in all its splendor. What was even more moving, was to hear the crowd damn near drown out the instruments singing along. Young, old, all colors, all political persuasions coming together for a few minutes of national pride.

I'm going to write the president of the symphony and suggest they begin ALL concerts with the national anthem, and have a local BSA troop present colors.

Sounds like a great idea, Dave.

Let's hope nobody gets their knickers in a twist over it!

yeah, I'm not ashamed to admit, seeing eveyone from young punkers with pink hair, to 80 year olds in suits and gowns standing together singing made for some watery eyes!

Thanks for all for the encouragement...I'm waiting to hear back from the director of operations. I like the JROTC idea too.

Here's a 'bout a color guard of veterans AND JROTC?
