  1. OMG I usually cry when I hear the National Anthem anyway-I’m such a sap–but this really did me in. For me I think it is just the spontaneity and feeling of belonging, bringing lots of different people together, if even for a moment…

      1. I see…listening now. Oh Wow. Thank you Mim. What an amazing, stunning, goosepimply, spectacle. WOW. Now please excuse…must go find a tissue.
