This is a good question and with some research I found that I have different ethnic groups in my family tree.

It can be argued that the vanguard of development has always been reflected in the arts of a culture. It is the poets, the dreamers and artists who are the architects of the future; the ones who build the world they want to live in, the ones who dream out loud1. Music is an elaborate art form, tempered by the emotions of those who create it and as such the dreams, creations and inventions are partly the products ? or at least artifacts ? of the world around them. As such, the social, economic

This campaign to discredit the Constitution as irreligious, which for many of its opponents was its principal flaw, is seldom mentioned today, because too many people today would like to ignore the fact that it is a godless document.
