Joyce's Performance

Today I had the fun of going to see Joyce in one of her World of Children performances. The children dress in costumes from different countries and sign to recorded music. It is very enjoyable to watch and the children always do an excellent job. Today Joyce wore a new costume. She has been dressed in a Thai outfit, but today she was dressed in a Swiss costume. The performance was held in a senior citizens center.
All the songs were wonderful, but there is one part that really impressed me. The National Anthem was announced without the usual request to "please stand." Of course there were many very frail looking folks present and no one would think twice about it if they decided to sit respectfully. But they didn't. They stood up. Some really struggled to get to their feet. One very elderly fellow had to make several tries and the song was nearly over, but he managed to come to a full military salute "For the land of the free and the home of the brave."
