    Short story. Many years ago my father was a young man coming back from WW2. He had been injured in battle and was coming home with so many other young men. While in the hospital, a man came in and said he would like to take several of these wounded heros to see a show. Dad was well enough to go. He said he was in pajamas, but wrapped in blankets and taken my ambulance to a huge theater. He and about 30 other young men were sitting in the front row, all wide-eyed boys back from war and on their way back to the farm. To his surprise, he saw the spectacular Christmas show by the Rocketts. He would tell us that they were the most beautiful ladies he had ever seen. After the show these beautiful ladies came off the stage and shook every one othes men's hands. It was then, that dad said, he saw what they had fought for....a wonderful country with the most beautiful people. He said he found the next prettiest girl he could find and married her...my mom.
    Your niece will melt the hearts and leave memories for so many people. With her grace and beauty and talent.
    Thank you for the wonderful story...Nina is our granddaughter and I can't wait to tell her about your post...

    So awesome! I saw the Rockettes at Christmastime, and they are so entertaining! I could see that show a dozen times and never tire of it.

    What an incredible honor and accomplishment for Nina. How proud you must be. Congratulations. My dream growing up was to be a Radio City Rockette!!! Could have made it....but sadly didn't. I love watching them perform.

    That's good. With the threats of firing I just wondered. I meant no offence.
