0:50 This old man at the podium is not having any of it. He's ready to get on with the graduation ceremony. Doesn't even bother clapping for them.

The old man at the podium (the Principal) helped set the whole thing up. There was a longer version posted but has been removed where he told her how hard it was for him to keep the secret for a month. I honestly believe he was caught off guard by the Audience response.

The "dude* was in on the entire thing. There was a longer version of this on YouTube where he explains how difficult it was for him in the month leading up to graduation not to tell her that her brother would be there.

The man behind the podium was stressing me out. How he was so ready for it to be over.
Bruce Ragland (2 months ago)
There was a longer version of this that has been deleted. He wasn't expecting the response it got and he was in on the planning of the brother being there.

They need to lock the entire NFL in a room for a week and make them watch nothing but these videos. If they don't come out crying then they are heartless POS' S and need to leave the country. Thank you to military and first responders for your service past, present and future and thank you for the families who actually sacrifice for real.

The guy at the lectern doesn't look like he was let in on what was going to happen and he don't look happy about it.
Dark Zhiro (2 months ago)
@ACP Hard not to when you see him in this video. So, not that stupid.
ACP (5 months ago)
Silly how you people stupidly jump to conclusions.
Bruce Ragland (8 months ago)
I saw a longer version of this. The guy at the lectern was in on the planning of the entire thing with her brother and knew for a month he was going to be there and was able to maintain and not say anything to her.
J. Mark Lane (9 months ago)
I had the same reaction. Or maybe he hates America and its military men and women. Like so many of our "academics", sadly. Why wasn't he clapping? Or even smiling?

Emily McCrackine (10 months ago)
WTF!!! These people VOLUNTARILY go out risk their lives, some even DIE, for A@# holes like you! You want to sleep at night knowing that you and your family will wake up, safe, no threats, FREE, but you also want to go and disrespect America, and those who protect it!! The Plege of Alegiance is not propaganda, these videos are not propaganda. You are probably just another civilian who thinks he/ she knows what their talking about. Well until you have your father, mother, sister, brother ,son or daughter, go and serve and be away from home for a year, you have no room to talk. If you will not stand behind or troops, stand in front of them, see wher that gets ya. Let me tell you something, you won't think their pain, suffering, and loss is propaganda anymore.

pledge of allegiance. lol.
Charles F (1 year ago)
Toto they need to leave out one nation under god because it was enacted until the 1950s and original or added pledge of allegence had it before then
thedonleroy (1 year ago)
I just can't imagine what it must be like for a family that has a loved one serving in a combat unit. Knowing their loved one is in harms way everyday. My heart felt thanks to the service members & their families that protect us every day.
Sarah Gratton (5 months ago)
Yes my brother is a Marine
Adam Broomfield (5 months ago)
@Sarah Gratton yes it is, my uncle is in the air force, hes in Iraq rn as a Security Force soldier, he has a wife and 2 girls and another girl on the way, it worries me every day not knowing if hell ever get to meet his daughter. Hes the whole reason i enlisted too, i hope whoever is serving in your family makes it home safe and happy!
Sarah Gratton (6 months ago)
It's an honor and privilege to have a family member that is in the service and it's also a heart break not knowing when they will be back 😭
YES :) then you will also get DEPLOYED from the service ;)
