I knew I posted too quickly yesterday! I got one of the songs wrong and forgot an integral part of the ceremony.

As the kindergartners processed into the hall, they all carried small American flags. Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" started playing, and one by one, they marched up to the table in the middle of the stage, put their flag into the vase on the table, put their arms behind them, and smiled at the crowd. Really set the tone for the whole event.

And, the song where they were sadly marching around the crowd, showing the crowd their sad, sad pictures? It was "We are the World." Even better, huh?

They played that song at R's citizenship ceremony, over images of Bush, JFK, and POWs from Vietnam.
