I had jury duty on the biggest day in history, January 20, 2009! I wanted to see Barack Obama take the Oath of Office for President of the United States.
After getting a lecture on why doing your civic duty was important, we did get to see the historical event on C-Span. Well we should have been inspired to be Americans. Some “Americans” just don’t think that way. Only half the room the stood for the national anthem. In forgien countries you could almost get beaten if not shot for not showing respect. They sentence people to death for tainted milk in China. Here in these United States we are free to not respect the national anthem even in a government building ~ Freedom!
