Young violinist not too nervous to meet President Bush

A young violinist has had a busy two days in Cincinnati. Alexandra Amend played the national anthem for about 40-thousand people at the Cincinnati Reds game yesterday. Today, the ten-year-old will meet President Bush as he lands on Air Force One for an appearance at the VFW convention. Alexandra says she was more nervous to play at the game for all those fans, than to meet the president. She has played violin for six years. After the September Eleventh terrorist attacks, Alexandra decided to put her talent to work. She began playing in public places to raise money for the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund and a scholarship fund for the children of fallen soldiers. The president is meeting with Alexandra to thank her for her community service.
