An incredible honor today as Rick and Riley Alire presented me with a Red Tail hawk feather. The father/son duo are Native Americans with roots to the Navajo and Apache tribes and are extremely proud of their important background. This morning they humbled me to the core with this amazing gesture. Riley shared that the feather signifies leadership, bravery, heart, honor and respect as he tied it onto my hockey helmet.
Rick shared, “It was an honor to present that to you. I’m
happy to consider you a part of my clan. we are all fighting for the greater cause. To live as happy as we possibly can.”
Thank you Rick and Riley!
