Editor's Note

Oh Yes ! Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good patriot song. I'll stand proud, hat off, hand over my heart and belt it out all the while a tiny tear trickles from my eye. I am that person.  I was always proud to be American, took it for granted really.  But back in the 80's, way back, I traveled to Eastern Europe with my BFF to visit her family.  It was way before the fall of the Berlin Wall and Communism was alive and well.  The hoops that we had to go through to get in the country, the RULES we had to follow while there and the sadness and despair of the people, paled in comparison to the suspicion, searching and questioning we endured trying to get out of the East. On a train no less.  It was then, a youngish 20something, that I realized -WE ARE SO LUCKY TO LIVE IN AMERICA!    So join me in the salute!!!!!! Sing it Loud and Proud!
