graduation-hope for the future, recovering drummer revisited, drummer duct tape, bb

so my wife she and i went to a high school graduation this weekend
after watching the students graduate, listening to the speeches,
watching videos and personally knowing many of the graduates
having spent time with them in my office discussing their plans
for the future i realize that these kids are being left our future and
it is being left in real good hands

these are our future doctors, nurses, teachers, professors,
researchers,ceos, politicians and maybe president
they are well qualified and seem more worldly and technically ready
for the future

i think they are ready and they will do a good job for us
you hear a lot about generation x and hear bad reports in the
news about how unprepared these kids are today but when you
spend time with them especially the brightest then
you know we are going to be ok

class of 2011 you were in the first grade when 911 happened
will that shape your impact on the world

class of 2011 you are our hope for the future

so this is the video that was on my blog last year
its about a drummer that fell down during competition but
managed to get back up and find his place and continue on
with the marching program

always felt that he should have gotten an award for his recovery
this band is one of the best in the state of texas
here is the video
he is the last white circle (drum) on the left

so i now have a great amount of respect for this drummer
he let me lift up that drum this weekend
dang that sucker is heavy

then he let me put it on my shoulders
the weight made me bend forward like i was kyphotic from
osteoporosis or was a stooped old man

it was so heavy i leaned back just to keep the big ole
drum up in the air
how does he march across the field with that thing on
how does he see where he is going
that big ole drum is in the way
its like having your windshield on a big old truck covered
with duct tape
i would just run over everyone

so as i was leaning back i turned to tell him that and i
knocked him over with that big ole drum

yep have a lot of respect for that boy now
he deserves an award

speaking of duct tape
so during competition this drum strap is white and shows up
against their green uniforms
everything has to be perfect you know for competition
tape, wraps, paints etc didnt work sooooo

when needed duct tape is always the answer
add that to the list

well it was the dwyane wade show last night
(his mom should have done a
spell check before she wrote his name on his
birth certificate)
heat now has the advantage
next game is must win for mavs
