"Tremble, tyrants and traitors!"

I saw this extremely touching scene last night on the BBC World News:  "President François Hollande stood among students at Paris-Sorbonne University, in honor of the many young people among the 129 victims who lost their lives on Friday. Those gathered sang "La Marseillaise," the national anthem, after the moment of silence, as did a crowd at the Louvre. Across France, schools and business also participated in the memorial." Of course I immediately thought of the scene in "Casablanca" where the French defiantly sing "La Marseillaise" to drown out the Nazi song in Rick's Cafe.  And I remembered the days after September 11 when we sang "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America" so united. Let's continue to sing out for our country, for our allies, and against Islamic Jihad!
