“tonight we are one member short of a full corps. We will forever be one member short”
With the loss of a young member and brother, the Colts find themselves standing silently at the gates of 2013. With the 50th year, comes a renewed sense of family, determination, and pure love.
A pattern has emerged with my time at the Colts, who within the last decade have felt many losses, and in times of pain, tie together tighter than ever before. No one can touch them.
In memory of Dakotah, Morning was played for the first time of the 2013 season. Lead by none other Casey Hallahan, who when addressing the corps called for this year to be one of the best and for every member to strive to reach the level of dedication, honor, and love for performance that Dakotah himself strived for.
In whatever you do, always strive for Dakotah’s Dedication.
