History teaches

So many things

But some of the best

Are left to rest.

26 names

At the start.

20 unknown kids

On the ice.

Collegiate and amateur.

Most barely even knew each other

Many disliked one another.

But in the end

On one Friday night

At five in the afternoon

Those 20 kids

United to

Become known

And loved

And gave a nation


That things would be okay.

They gave us a chance

To dream again

And to do what many

Hadn't done in a while.


A shot and a dream.

The game made them winners

Their spirit made them heroes.

32 years past.

Do you still believe in miracles?
