What is your opinion of the new Spanish language version of the national anthem?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on April 29, 2006
“I think it probably ought to stay in English. I wouldn’t expect people in Mexico to sing the English version of their national anthem. That would be disrespectful.”
“I imagine it caters to a large portion of the population, so it’s probably about time.”
“I think the national anthem of my country should have to be sung in my national language. Singing it in another language defeats the purpose behind it.”
“I think it’s great. There are a lot of Spanish-speaking people in this country. And it’s not like they are changing the lyrics or the meaning, just the language.”
