The Land of the Free – The Home of the Brave

I’m sure you’ve seen this video by now.  The Asst. Principal from Florida  who unwittingly gathered a crowd with her beautiful rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at the Lincoln Memorial. This video really struck me, and I was surprised.  I think something about this highly contentious election which seems to be pitting us against one another.  And how Americans are red, yellow, black and white; green gray, purple too! Even if some folks are upset about that. Yet in this moment, it is simply a citizen, singing her country’s anthem beautifully, and many others a great deal also citizens joining together to appreciate and  remember what the flag has stood for.
