Making Everyone's Day.

All sports provide the opportunity to excel in all sorts of ways.

Sporting events are often about more than just the game, as this clip from a CBS newscast clearly shows. This video has gone viral on the Internet; if you have already seen it, you will know why. (I first watched it when it was posted here.)

I'm glad I took the time to watch this video to the end.  From the words and emotions shown by this young wide-reciever, he obviously really "gets it."

This is the kind of magic that make our world a better place. Let's keep sharing this message - until everyone has seen it. 



Can you think of a time when you were able to "make everyone's day"?

Happy Weekend. Please share this post.

  1. I love that you shared this Susan. We hear so many bad things about teens, and bullying. It's wonderful to hear a story about the nice side of teenagers for once! I have a similar story to share on my blog next week! Have a great weekend.

    1. Really? It is pretty uplifting, even though I typically don't follow much about football.

  3. I missed this one Saturday, thankfully Lana picked it up and I got to see it. That was so inspiring and lovely it brought tears to my eyes. That little boy at the end touched my heart, he will grow up to do wonderful things. There was a boy like this when my husband was in high school and he was picked on mercilessly, my husband didn't like it and stood up for him and even got into a few fights over him but people stopped picking on him and pretty soon he was friends with everyone. To this day he works at the Walmart as a greeter back in our hometown and has since he was 18 and he would be 47 now he can spot my husband out a mile away and will come running up to him, it is so sweet to see and made me very proud of my husband. He didn't tell my the story, the boy at Walmart did and he loves my husband and now our family, my kids know him and he recognizes them every time even though we only get in there every couple of years he's still there every time. There are some great kids out there, I experienced it when we walked last Saturday there were so many teenagers and college kids we were amazed. Great that you shared this!
