This past Saturday I spent the day with an inspiring, creative, and uplifting group of kids. They call themselves "Worm Tank Crew" they mob deep, from little nuggets to grown adults. They are a dance crew that focuses on battling in a new light, positivity. They represent everything a team should be, they are friends but more so they are a family.
It was an incredible experience to spend the day with them, watching them do what they love, cheer each other on, and get "hype" really brought me back to my days on a close knit team. Sometimes you forget how important it is to have a family outside of your immediate family. Creating a network of those who will look out for you, mentor you, and laugh with you is vital. As somewhat of a loner I often forget this, and keep to myself. I am now reminded that I need role models and I need to be a role model. Perhaps it is time to get involved and spread the love.
What a wonderful thing all the forms of art are, they bring more people together than anything I could ever imagine.
