I have a question for those who found the multiple voices singing the song
in different languages to be shocking, unAmerican, etc.
I was un
-sure of what I was hearing.
I was trying to figure out whether
thay were just mumbling
n slurring words
Some of their words were very clear.
If it was just one singer's voice singing the song in all those languages,
would your reaction be any different? Why?
Let me be clear that I don t like multi-culturalism in America,
but having said that: IF ALIENS
(here or anywhere) CHOOSE TO SING
OF THE BEAUTY OF AMERICA
, then toward that: I have no objection
I remember standing in line in Formosa, years ago.
The Nationalist Chinese were attending to identity badges,
bearing our names and countries of origin. I saw the different symbols
on my badge and I asked a Chinese citizen with whom I was conversing for a translation.
He said that the Chinese symbols literally meant "the Beautiful Country." That was moving.
