    Something Positive in A School!

    Last night we went to my grandson's 4-6 Grade choir concert at his school. It was about as most are until they sang "America the Beautiful". I almost had tears because I love the song and I was beginning to believe I wouldn't hear it in public anymore. They did a good job and the crowd went nuts! Not so much for the talent but for the song.

    An interesting side tidbit, this is a Title (something) school with over 70% Hispanic and many of them farm labor kids. The Hispanics seemed at least as enthusiastic as the rest of us.

    We may be headed for hell in a hand basket, but I have more hope now than I did before the concert.

    It is a great song.
    In regards to the Hispanic population, you have to remember, thousands come here for the opportunity that their country fails to provide. They may be illegally, but they do see their chances being a lot better here. If you make the effort to take the steps to be here legally, you are golden in my book!!!!
    I wish they would immigrate legally, but they are literally risking their lives to get here, just to support themselves or their family.
    This should tell how good we have it here! Most of us live like royalty compared to a large portion of the world.

    We all are the immigrants

    I love this song too. We all are the immigrants - some Americans seems to forget about it!
