Virginia Tech’s Men’s Basketball coach, Buzz Williams, realized that there was a disconnect between the players and the respect they gave during the National Anthem at games. He wanted to do something to help them understand its importance. So he gathered his players into an empty gym.
He invited Veterans to the school to give the players a real depiction of what the National Anthem means. He gave the young men an opportunity to see what patriotism is all about – it’s not about singing the song, or getting through it to get to tip off. It’s about the men and women who served fearlessly and sacrificed their lives in order to give them freedom to step on the court each day.
What a powerful speech!
