Slices of Life: National anthem brings teams together
And then, softly, ever so softly, I heard voices in cadence with my mouthed lyrics. They were subdued at first, but gained momentum with each word. I joined their forces — as loud as I dared (given my bad voice and all). "Were so gallantly streaming." This part was barely audible....

To the editor: School building plans raise questions
