Columbus Day Parade A Moment That Says It All

Bagpipers and band members prepared for hours at the annual Columbus Day Parade. At least 500,000 people filed out to watch 35,000 marchers along 5th Avenue.

Wild Thing's comment......

I love seeing things like this happen. A big thank you to the Retired Marine Veteran and to General Peter Pace. And I have always loved bagpipes. I hope America never stop having these parades and never stops thanking our Veterans and our troops today.

On Monday, the online NY papers I saw were geeked about it being Latino appreciation day. I didn't see any coverage of the troops, nor do I recall them saying anything about Columbus. Maybe you had to go to the newsstand for the 'EXPANDED" coverage.
