Hope

Warning...you may cry, but if you need a reminder of the creative ways that we can love others check out this article about how a football team loved another team made up of inmates. Sometimes people just need to be reminded that they are somebody important.

AWE-SOME! Thanks for sharing that story...I thought I had cried all my tears out at "Marley and Me" today, but I guess not.

Anyway, with the economy six feet under and Christmas running on about three and a half reindeer, it's nice to know that one of the best presents you can give is still absolutely free.

Hope.


So perfect!

Sometimes people just need to be reminded that they are somebody important.
And sometimes a simple 'hello' can do just that.

Rick Reilly is an amazing writer. I always read his column first for many, many years that he wrote for SI. In fact, "Hate Mail From Cheerleaders" is on my bookshelf at work.

Great Story as usual.

I was reading that story yesterday.

Totally amazing.

Friend of mine got a bunch of the guys from the CU at our university to go into to start playing football (soccer) tournaments at the local prison. Lives do get changed.
