Everyone in the world,

is different from everyone else.

That's easy to see.

Just look.

But everyone is lucky enough

to have one thing in common,

One thing that binds

everyone together.

[ AMERINDIAN MUSIC ]

[ APPLAUSE ]

Everyone has a heritage,

a family history,

traditions

handed down from grandparents

and great-grandparents.

Our next performer

is Kyle Johnson.

[ CALLING ]:
Kyle.

Hey, I'm down here!

Kyle.

[ WHISPERING ]:
Kyle.

[ KYLE ]:
But what if I'm not that lucky?

What if I'm the only person

who doesn't have a heritage?

What if I'm...different?

I said I'm down here!

[ KYLE ]:
Can't you see me?

[ WHISPERING ]:
Kyle.

Aah!

[ MOTHER ]:
Kyle.

Huh!

It's time to get ready for the game.

Go, Eagles!

I must have zonked out.

I was having

this really weird dream

about this Heritage Day thingy

that's going on at school.

- Pregame anxiety. Everybody gets it.

I used to dream

I was at the game wearing nothing

but my underwear.

and I was just in the band.

You'll do fine, Kyle.

You always do.

Here, have some yogurt

and a fruit bar.

It'll help you keep

your energy up.

That sounds good.

I might have some of that myself.

Where's our family from, Dad?

We're from right here, Son.

No. No, I mean,

where do we come from?

You know, what's our heritage?

We moved here from Cleveland.

We're Americans, Kyle.

That's all the heritage we need.

Hey, come on, Kyle.

You're gonna be late

for the game. Let's go!

Don't forget to wear

your lucky coin.

I had this really weird feeling.

Like there was something

they weren't telling me.

This was the first time our school

had ever made it to the State

basketball playoffs.

[ FANS CHEERING ]

Get over, Russell. Find your shot!

Tonight was

the Quarter Finals,

and we were goin'

all the way this year.

State Champions.

[ CHEERLEADER ROUTINE ]

And I was the reason why.

Yeah!

Everything was goin' my way.

I was one lucky guy.

[ GIRLS ]:
There's Kyle!

[ BOY ]:
There he is!

[ GIRL ]:
Great, Kyle!

[ EVERYONE CHEERING ]

Gee, that was a lucky shot.

Hey, luck's got nothin' to do with it.

Lookin' good, Kyle.

Yeah, I taught him

everything he knows.

[ MORE CHEERING ]

Hey, Kyle.

Oh! Hi, Bonnie.

- You know I'm in charge of

the Heritage Day committee.

You're in charge of,

like, every committee.

I mean, somebody's gotta do it.

I'm putting together

the program, and I wanted to know

what you're going to do for Heritage Day.

I don't know.

I mean, you know,

this whole Heritage Day thing,

it's like so Public Television.

It's your history.

Yeah, but I mean, history...

You know, it's like

so ten minutes ago.

Now, sports,

That's what's happenin' now.

That's where

I'm comin' from. Heh!

That's right.

Well, even if you are

some kind of mindless jock,

you still got a heritage.

Mindless?

- America is a nation of

immigrants, Kyle,

everybody's ancestors came from

another country.

Yeah, I'm part Cherokee.

So, where's your family from?

Is Johnson an English name,

or did they change it

from Johannsen,

or something?

Uh, we're from Cleveland.

Ha, ha. Very funny.

Now, come on, you know

what I mean.

[ BELL RINGS ]

Look, uh, I've got a test, OK?

See you guys later.

Uhh...jocks!

[ BELL RINGS ]

Time's up, people!

Put your test papers

on my desk

on your way out, please.

Thank you.

You'd be better off

leaving 'em blank, Kyle.

Remember, I subtract points

for wrong answers.

Summer school!

[ BOTH LAUGH ]

I do it specifically to discourage

what you just did--

Guessing at the answers.

You know, in real life,

you can't depend on luck
