When Ryan first brought home the request for a speaking part, he said no. I kept it on the counter and we talked about it over the weekend. By Monday morning, Ryan ageed to do it. I'm so proud and so glad he participated. Mrs. Black does a top notch job working with the students for the performance. Ryan quoted Charles F. Brown by saying, "We can't all be Washington's but we can all be patriots." He also stated that, The Rockies, The Smithsonian, and The Liberty Bell" are all American icons. Great job, Ryan!
