Celebrating Kindness … Indeed

I bleed Wolfpack red. Did you know that?

I’m so extremely proud of the NCSU’s (#20) victory over no. 1 Duke on Saturday. I was at the YMCA while the game was on, though it wasn’t until the last 1:30 of the game that my son and I actually stopped to pay attention (I’m no basketball fan, but I can get behind my Wolfpack). Here in North Carolina, like all of the ACC states in the nation, basketball is a big deal.

What an exciting finish! If you missed it, the last ninety seconds of the game were a whirlwind of fouls and free throws, three-point shots, and pure adrenaline. I don’t think Mike Krzyzewski has seen a Pack this strong since the Valvano glory days. But what was even more exciting than the win … even more overwhelming than the sea of red and white-clad fans rushing the court … even more touching than the pride felt by the player’s families for a hard-fought victory … was C.J. Leslie’s remarkable move to help student Will Privette, who was knocked from his wheelchair in the mad dash to center court.

I’m a big believer in the news reporting on good things happening in the world, too, and this act of kindness is, indeed, remarkable. Here’s the victory dash.
