Very nice story about one college athlete helping out an injured opponent.

Thanks for sharing this, Michael! Nice to read a story about people with compassion - especially in an area like athletics where the final score is often the main story!

sweet. thanks EasyMichael.

at my daughter's middle school track meet last week, there was a girl much smaller and slower than the rest being lapped by the others on the 'long race'....kids on both teams were cheering her on like no tomorrow and lifted her up when she completed the race. and this from cynical middle schoolers...there truly is hope and we learn it from our kids sometimes.
