Here is to the human spirit

I am not personally a huge basketball fan. As those who know me will tell you, I am a soccer freak. However, I have played basketball before, I have made a couple baskets, and cheered on a team or two as they headed for the championships. But this post is not really about basketball. This post is about the power and strength of the human spirit. Watch this video:

Jason McElwing – Basketball Hero

What touches me about this video are two things. First, that Jason, despite his disability, has the courage to help other people take a role that other people may not want to take. Second, the amazing love and support showed to Jason by his family, friends, and entire school. The human spirit is alive and kicking and this video shows it.

(Thanks to Doug Green for sending me the video.)
