When crowds go wild...

When the microphone failed midway through an 8-year old's singing of the national anthem, the hockey crowd boldly picked up when the volume of the microphone did not. They could have blamed me, but individuals chose to sing. They could have roared in near frustration, but they sang in support. They could have blamed the tech guy, but they helped finish out the song. They could have raised fists expecting blood, but they only raised voices in solidarity. They could have raised their arms about the problem, but they focused on a solution. Moving on was more powerful than anyone could have predicted. Who anticipates everyone rooting for the same outcome at a hockey game? Do you?
