INSPIRED: A team called America

Print Article

On Thursday, as I was watching the Fourth of July Parade at 10th and Sherman with my daughters-in-law and granddaughter, the Coeur d’Alene High School Cheer Squad and football players passed by. The most unexpected thing happened that I must acknowledge. Football players from CHS were shaking the hands of all veterans along the parade route and thanking them for their service to our country. They approached vets from the street side (parade route) and a large number of them were making their way down the sidewalk. I shook hands with at least 10 of these young men and I can’t tell you how impressed I was and how appreciative. This gesture impacted me and all the people around me as they continued the 18 blocks down the street.

I do not know whose idea this was, but I suspect that the leadership of Coeur d’Alene High School, the coaches and the students all played a role. GREAT JOB!
