America The Beautiful

I can NOT watch the Longhorn Band's 9/11 Tribute without getting choked up, out of pain for the victims and their families, out of respect for our country, and out of pride for our daughter, who's out on the field playing her clarinet (first in the S, then in the U) in this chilling rendition of America, the Beautiful. It's SO well worth your two and a half minutes - - the swell at 1:18 is the part where the tears start to flow. Grab the Kleenex and turn it up.


  1. Spectacular and very emotional! So proud of those band kids and their rendition---what a fitting tribute.

  2. This is the same score that John played with this band when they went to DC for the Reagan inauguration, so it's doubly special to us!


I really enjoy hearing from my readers; thanks for sharing your reflections with us!
