FOR YOUR ENJOYMENT: For your enjoyment here's my newest song/video "That's What Makes America Great".  It takes less than 2 minutes to watch. If you like it, I encourage you to share it. I had the idea and refrain line for months and then after sharing them at a solstice party the enthusiastic response gave me the energy to finish the song. May we all be encouraged to work on projects that have the potential to make our countries and our world a better place. Thanks to Liam Romalis and Mako Funasaka who jumped on my ideas for the video and made it happen.
