When I attended our high school football games this past fall, I was equally drawn in by the halftime marching band shows as I was the game itself.

The band is precise, making exact moves and counts all while looking up to the stands (not down at their feet like I surely would have). There is trust that each member knows his or her part, that there will be no crashing into each other because the audience demands a certain level of quality. In the band, there is family.
