Wow. This is a hyper mushy post for me. First, I did read Anne Frank's diary when I was 13 years old. I did admire Anne on her take on her surroundings, her family's condition, her interest in Peter, and her writing, Second, I didn't know of Jim Nabors although Carol Burnett was shown on black and white tv my childhood years. I love all those songs they sang. Some are my piano pieces. Thanks for ushering me down memory lane. I enjoyed the video very much. June 12 is our Independence Day.
