Importance of being bilingual

I found this commercial a while ago....
learn another language...
learn about another culture...
The importance of being bilingual in our complicated
and interconnected world today.
This is not a current ad...but a great commercial nonetheless.

SkyWatch Friday






See other beautiful
sky scenes @:

I recently visited the WWII Monument in Washington, D.C....
Beautiful, inspiring, HUGE, monument located on the mall
half-way between the Washington and Lincoln Monuments.
This monument is a reverent and respectful place. It
painfully reminds of the past, but looks skyward to a
better future made possible by those who sacrificed
their lives to help end WWII.
