Thank You, Derrick Coleman

I am no sports fan. I managed to completely forget that the Super Bowl was yesterday until a friend pointed it out when I invited her family over to dinner Sunday night.

I am, however, a fan of Derrick Coleman, player for the Seattle Seahawks (my daughters’ team, by the way, thanks to a Daddy and Grampy who are fans).

Here’s why.

I could probably write a ton about why it’s important for people in the public eye to show compassion and generosity. I could go on and on about how important is it to see people with disabilities in professions unrelated to their disabilities. I could go on forever about why it’s important to acknowledge the challenges faced by those with special needs while at the same time letting them know that they can accomplish great things. But the video says it all.

Thank you, Derrick Coleman.

So, be honest. Did you cry watching this too?
