Five min­utes.  Does that seem like a long time?  Not sure you want to give up that amount of time to a video of high school football?

This is a video about a Texas foot­ball game.  And yet, it is so much more than just that.  This is a story of hope.  A story of com­pas­sion.  And a story of caring.

Watch.

Open your heart.

Be inspired.

We have oppor­tu­ni­ties, every day, to do good in our world.  And it’s all about chang­ing the world, one small step at a time.  What one coach did here — one small act of real car­ing — had an affect on so many lives, in very pow­er­ful ways.  And just think of the rip­ple effect, of these peo­ple who were pow­er­fully affected, going out and doing some­thing good because of the way they felt after this game!  Isn’t that amaz­ing, how one small act can just grow and grow — to who knows how big!

Your Turn

How does this video speak to you?   How can you go forth, today,  and really care for the world around you?

“Unless some­one like you cares a whole awful lot, noth­ing is going to get bet­ter. It’s not.” ~ Dr. Seuss

All of you are capa­ble of so much good in this world.  Every­one!  Be that bea­con of hope, today, for some­one who really needs it.  Care, with all your heart…
