This evening, on the way down to Navy Pier to enjoy the fireworks for the holiday, our train car, packed to the absolute gills, suddenly burst into a rousing rendition of the National Anthem. My classmate Matthew and I then led the car in "America, the Beautiful". Others joined in, it was hysterical and a lot of fun. There was much applause at the end of the two songs. What a way to ring in the 4th, even if a bit early.
