Visiting a capitol

Monday was a visit to the capitol in Madison, Wisconsin.  As we entered we heard glorious singing (music to a music teacher’s ears!) from under the dome.  A group of 15-20 AFL-CIO members were protesting the governor’s attack on their unions.  I met three folks, sang along and have a souvenir song book.

The purpose of the visit was to tour the magnificent structure.  It was beautiful.  While the tour guide explained each of the areas (in the Governors Hearing Room I found out I had randomly chosen the Lt. Governor’s chair)  a renewed pride of being American, whose country is founded on freedoms so many others can only imagine, welled within me.  Happy July 4 and Happier November 4, 2014!
