    Re: Celebrate What Unites Us

    Woody and Irving. Different guys from different backgrounds with different perspectives who captured the greatness of America in song. First, Woody's anthem, performed by the incomparable Weavers of whom Carl Sanburg said: "When I hear America singing, the Weavers are there."

    And Irving's prayer for America. Introduced by the divine Kate.

    Turn up your speakers and enjoy the music. And enjoy the day as well.
