What would Independence Day be like without music? On the occasion of Lebanese Independence Day, the Army Band inspired the entire Ras Beirut Elementary School. Starting with the National Anthem, all the students and faculty felt proud to wave the red, white, and green. While waving their banners or flags, children clapped to the tempo or sang along with the traditional songs played by the men in uniform. There was even a little dabke. The Army Band continues to be a welcome inspiration at the Ras Beirut Elementary School, as they always remind all of us how strong, how free, and how proud we all feel when the band performs those national songs.
