Star Spangled Banner

This video is a recording of 1000 Kentucky All-State Choir voices filling this 18 story hotel with the Star Spangled Banner, as you have never heard it. It brings back a memory from our trips to Rome with students. I remembered walking by the American Embassy , seeing the Stars and Stripes flying and being overcome by how blessed I felt at being an American. Our first trip to Rome was in the middle of the days when Red Brigade terrorists were kidnapping Nato generals. There were plenty of people then as now who don’t feel love for America or Americans.

Anyway, I imagine that most people seeing their national flag and hearing their national anthem feel love and pride for their country. Oh well, it just seems an appropriate connection in the midst of the Soshi Olympics!
