Just finished a charming week-long song-writing session at James R. Henderson P.S. in Kingston. One class wrote a song to raise money for an orphanage in Kenya. Another class wrote their tune about salsa -- and buying/shopping locally. Quite a juxtaposition. In one of the classes, there was one brave girl who sang the national anthem. I found out she sings it every day while none of her classmates joins her. I admire her a lot.
