Proud to be an American

Senior, Parth M. filmed, edited, and danced in a moving family tribute to the USA.

CDS is honored to start our week off with one of our rising senior's creativity and gratitude. CDS Class of 2021 student, Parth M., has filmed, edited, and danced in the below creation. Combining elements of the age old Indian classical art form known as Bharatnatyam with American Patriotism, the video showcases three generations of family members - Parth, his mother, and his grandmother - and their artistry and adoration for this country.

In Parth's father's own words "This video brings hope and togetherness within the community at large. My wife, having served at the Veterans hospital here in Tampa and having gratitude for this land after immigrating here in 1990 feels such a tribute is long overdue. My mother-in-law also featured in the video has always stood up for this country and its ideals and we are all truly grateful for all the opportunities it has brought us, but you HAVE to work hard to earn her respect."

Thank you to Parth and his entire family for such a beautiful tribute and for helping all of us to start our week off with gratitude.
