This sketch is from one of the two holiday school band concerts I attended this month. Since my nephew Calvin has been in 6th grade, I've been to many band concerts. Now he's a freshman and his brother Joshua is in the 6th grade band, and their sister Somerset will be there next year.
Every band concert I've seen makes me feel hopeful for the future of our world. Here's wishing you hope and joy in 2013. Happy New Year!
