#beginquote# Dear annoymous, Concerning your concern about marching without peripheral vision I would like to encourage you with this story. My children were in marching band so I am familiar with the struggles that the band members deal with day to day in practice. When the flag girls had their spring competition (El Paso, Texas) one flag girl from the visiting HS drew my immediate attention, she was blind. I watched her the entire competition and did not see any significant modification other than she was lead by the hand to her position, faced the correct way and when the music started did not drop her flag, rifle, sword once (which by the way she had to know where they were and where to put them). I approached her and ask the obvious, How? Everything was done by count and since you don't need to see to count it was doable. But I realized that those around her could not and would not deviate from the choreographed show. So get out there and march and find those friends who can and will become "closer than an brother". #endquote#
