At this time in our history as a country, we have finally come to realize that “the United States is not what it used to be”. I am not saying that it could not, once again, rise to its previous stature in the world, but when one considers our debt, joblessness, loss of homes and businesses, drug problem and lack of respect of our current leaders, one ponders the reasons for this change.
A friend of mine sent me this video and I thought it was a very telling example of what is happening in countries outside our boarders. Along with the video, he made these comments…..
“Talk about having fun making music!
It’s cute beyond words, but it’s also very good.
I don’t know how the kids, parents and director do this – but I like it a lot!
They even did a grade 3 (or so) tune of mine @ around the 6:30 mark. Watch it all.
This is fun stuff”!
I have been interested in the Eastern culture for most of my life and have studied both the mental (Meditation & Yoga) and physical (Yoga & Karate) approaches to this life style and believe we have a great deal to learn from our neighbors.
Bloggers many times post articles to generate conflict and this in turn draws attention to their pages. It is not my intent to do this because conflict is counterproductive. Understanding why we have fallen in the World market is important and we all need to do our part to become the country we were in past years. If you can better our country, it is your responsibility to do so. If you are a voting citizen and able to cast your vote in the next election, it is your responsibility to do so.
If you would like to see our United States of America once again lead the world, become involved, no matter which political direction you may favor.
I would like to post a video next year or the following of a group of young American children performing at this level and say proudly……
“Those talented kids are from the United States of America”.
