Great Drum Line Video

My friend Kerri Schmidt sent me this video of her nephew. Matt is a 17 year old with Down syndrome. He attends Appleton West High School and plays in the band and drum line. Kerri told me that the kids all love Matt and that is certainly evident in this video clip. She also told me that it would bring tears to my eyes, it did. (At the beginning you can see Matt against the wall waiting for his entry.)

Brought tears to my eyes too. (Having been a part of a drum line in high school myself, this has extra meaning, too.)
