    awesome, touching, and gives hope

    There is respect out there. And traditions are still being honored. This gives me hope, taken on a military base.

    Link is no good.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Won't see that at P.S. 119.

    Thank God for the small things in life.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

    This. Children do what they are taught and what is expected of them. If they are not taught and you expect little, you will get a proportional response.

    I must confess that my daughter would not have responded as appropriately but we are not a military family and neither she nor I have been trained. National Anthem or Color Guard - different story.

    Wow that brings back some memories!!! When we were stationed overseas, they always played the National Anthem at the Base Theater before the main feature and everyone stood up. Was kinda weird when we came back to the states and went to the local theaters...
