I made a new one sorry guys lol
Well howdy! My name is Monica and I was a lead trumpet for the 2013 Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps.
For those of you who don’t know the story, last season I marched with two severe stress fractures, tendinitis in both legs, both kneecaps popped out, both ankles out of place, severe muscle inflammation in both legs, nerve and joint damage going up to my lower back, tumors as the result of stress, and a really funny looking limp among other things. Because of that, I was not able to perform to the best of my abilities, and I was always told to sit out, and it absolutely killed me.
This season, I want to fix that. I’m all recovered and ready to go, but unfortunately I’m still dependent on my parents, and they said they are not going to support me at all for another summer. The memories and family I made this summer, as well as the frustration of knowing I couldn’t give my best effort, is reeling me back in to the activity that I have aspired to do since I was 8. I finally achieved my dream, but not in the way I wanted to. I would be extremely grateful for another summer with my BK family, and for another chance with the corps that changed me for the better in so many ways.
Thank you guys :)
