America The Beautiful

There are many things wrong in the world today. Singing America The Beautiful in different languages is not one of them.

Sing it all over the world.

Anyone who wants to complain can surely find plenty of reasons to do so. Just turn on the radio or TV, take a look at the newspaper or fire up your computer. There are so many things to complain about it will be hard to know where to start. Politicians spend millions trying to solve all the problems in the Mideast while innocent people are gunned down every day in Chicago. Elected officials bow to special interests instead of the needs of those who elected them. Corruption is rampant at all levels of government. Yes, there are many things we should be complaining about. Singing America The Beautiful in any language is not one of them.

I applaud those young women in the Coke commercial who sang the song in several languages. I think America is a beautiful place I like to think that many people around the world who don't live here and speak our language think so too. I would like to hear the song sang more often. I would like it to be sung in many languages and in many parts of the world. If America is as beautiful as the song says it is, let's spread the word.

Hi Ron. We even have a park here in Colorado Springs named America the Beautiful Park. I applauded the young people in that Coke Commercial too.

That's what this site is all about, or at least it should be. What's the point in following a writer if we don't take the time to read and comment on what they write?

People of different races and religions getting along is NOT something to complain about, it is something to rejoice, too bad reality and the commercial do not jive.

I wonder why people are complaining about this commercial? I think it is beautiful. Remember - our ancestors came from other countries.

Hello Ron, I have not yet see or heard any positive or negative feed back on this particular Coke A Cola Song Yet. But now I go looking for It thanks for the heads up. I see nothing wrong with It being sung as long as it is sung as written and not A libbed as many do today. I agree with you let It be sung All over the World and Let It be a truth for all the world As We are now the last hold out to the New World Order we will soon be attacked and Down graded as a villainous snake that will not Cave to the Worlds demand to be ruled. As a world control by Few instead of a Government ruled by many. A change is nearing Our Horizon and It comes as a thief in the night. And Yet the Thief is working Daily in the Light of day change little things until the little things are suddenly Major and gigantic things. Things that are not easily reserved or overturn without violence. A Change is looming at the Worlds door and It is unstoppable. Nice write Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man
