In this activity you constantly get asked why you do it. Why you give up weekends, summers, and a lot of money to march. Why you sacrifice your time, your health, relationships, work, school, just to play music. People say “you must have so much fun”. You don’t. This activity is not meant to be fun. It sure as hell is not easy. You have fun times, but that is far from the reason you do it. It’s about being a part of something bigger than you. It’s about pushing for perfection when you don’t think you can push any harder. It’s about fighting for your family because you know they’re fighting for you. Yes, it can be fun. But that’s not what makes our sacrifices worth it.
