HUG A BAND KID TODAY

I LOVE THOSE BAND KIDS – Our son Ryan, 16, had his Holiday Band concert last night. He plays the trombone and has since sixth grade.
I love those band kids. Great unsung hero types. Quietly go about bringing music and color and beauty to schools, football games, basketball games, while others get the applause. I remember being at one football game and the announcer made all his thanks for the day with not a mention of the band which played for 3 of 4 quarters of the game.
Several of these kids in the band are also Boy Scout members, including our Ryan. Seriously, amazing kids. Okay, do a good deed- Go hug a band kid today, or at least thanks for the music!
