THE MARCH IN TWO MINUTES AND 53 SECONDS
My friend Eric made this. You’ll feel as though you were there. I’ve watched it five times (and I was there). I particularly love the sign one marcher carried – “I can’t believe we still have to protest this crap.” This is America, after all – no? Pass it on.
AND HOW ABOUT THESE VIOLINS?
They are from a town with a 12% unemployment rate. Their school is seriously underfunded and their music program is being cut back. Yet Ohio’s Newark High School Sinfonia tied for first runner-up at the National Orchestra Cup this past April. Just listen to them play.*
*It’s okay to make breakfast while you do; no fancy close-ups or anything – just the music.
I have lots of other stuff to write about today, but these two are just too good to dilute with anything else. Have a great weekend.
