On thr bus home from a football game I was trying to explain just what marching WGI was like to a fellow band member. I was trying to put into words the comradery that you get.
One of the hardest things I’ve ever tried to explain to someone is the motivation you get for marching. You don’t work your ass off every weekend for you. Then you don’t go home and practice every day for you. You don’t get better for your benefit. Everything you do is for the guy standing next to you. He’s working his ass off for you, you better do the same for him. He’ll never let you down. Why would you do it to him.
