The first since the Boston Marathon and something that inspired me in the midst of the lockdown in Boston. Sing along!
Animals fascinate me. I wonder how my dog Buddy can be so simple to chase a ball I throw 500 times and still want it once more and yet still understand when I am sad and snuggle up next to me. They have their own thoughts and feelings I suppose, they just can't say what they are.
Giraffes have always been one of my favorite animals at the zoo. The shape of their bodies is just....different. And I guess being a tall girl, I liked the animals that looked tall and magestic. Ever wonder what they do in their spare time? Diving, apparently.
I love sporting events. I grew up going to football and basketball games, played volleyball and tennis, ran track and in general, just enjoyed being physical. The event that preceded all these games is the national anthem. Maybe you can make it through hearing (or singing) it without crying but I can't. Although we can complain about our country, nothing like what happened in Boston can make you feel more like a Patriot than belting out the national anthem.
And this girl, she belted it out. She's Marlana VanHoose, a blind girl born with cytomegalovirus. And can she SING!!!
