    After all, these young students from suburban schools will have a first hand experience of seing a lot of world leaders just in-front of them instead of TV screens. What an opportunity!

    are these kids forced to perform these things? if so, its a form of child abuse

    for a young one to perform in this type of an even is an achievement.
    when we were young, we proudly participated in these types of events..

    Those days are gone, you were proud as you were a patriot, but now you are trying to survive, misusing the stamina of these children, to bow down to other countries.
