Last week the Glee Club started off several of their concerts with the National Anthem. To the Grunge, it always fits, no matter the venue or assembled group.
At the UT Elementary School (a charter school), the kids loved it. I caught s glimpse out of the corner of my eye at one young lady in particular. As soon as the Glee Club started singing, she rose to her feet and stood at attention. Then several times throughout, she would salute. There’s a part of me that wondered if a parent or parents were/are in the Service. I didn’t ask and it would not have mattered. What matters, I think, is that she understood the importance of the Anthem in her own, very special, way.
It reminds me that patriotism is always in style and also the tremendous impact our guys have on others when they are out and about. I saw it often as the Glee Club traveled from the Alamo to Vista Ridge High School to the retirement community at Longhorn Village. These guys are the face of Wabash!
