Students' pride in the flag is heartwarming

By Gene Grange

Dear Editor:

After seeing the picture of the Delta High football team in last week's DCI all standing in line hand over heart and helmets at their feet for the national anthem, I had to write and congratulate the players, parents, coaches and school officials. In this day and age all we hear about our youth is the bad things, but I have renewed faith in the future of this great country by the actions of a small but dignified group of players. If I could, I would like to shake each and everyone's hand on that team and tell them how their actions of dignity and respect affected me. With this type of upbringing I know you all are on the right track for a great future life. Once more, congratulations on a job well done. Keep up the good work!!
