Compare & Contrast

New York & most of America:

O beautiful for patriot dream

That sees beyond the years

Thine alabaster cities gleam

Undimmed by human tears!

America! America!

God shed his grace on thee

And crown thy good with brotherhood

From sea to shining sea!

Washington, D.C.
One protester, Rik Silverman, 27, of Arlington said he was holding a sign that said, "Shame on You" when a marcher leaned over the railing and punched him in the stomach. A U.S. Park Police officer wrote a report but no arrests were made.

The sun on the meadow is summery warm.
The stag in the forest runs free.

But gather together to greet the storm.

Tomorrow belongs to me.
