I was at the YMCA in a class aquacising and chatting, when someone asked a friend to sing. I caught her, saying, “You start it.” After finding the pitch, she did.
“Oh! Say can you see …”.
Slowly heads turned and voices lifted as we sang the national anthem all the way through without stopping the class or the song. By the time the end came, all were singing reverently to the climatic word … "free!" Someone added a heartfelt, “Amen!”
I will not forget the moment or the look on my classmates' faces.
At the YWCA, there are numerous moments to exercise the body and nourish the mind and soul. Let us continue to support and nourish the YWCA.
