There’s always an opportunity to make someone’s day…or week…or life.
That’s what the Olivet Eagles demonstrated by their amazing play. The Michigan middle school football team planned an amazing play.
As the comedian John Mulaney once said, “Thirteen-year-olds are the meanest people in the world. They terrify me to this day.” However, these boys go against the norm. They rose up and even made the crowd boo them in order to give their developmentally-disabled teammate a chance to shine.
We won’t ruin anything else–go ahead and watch the video. But as you watch, consider: is there any way you can brighten someone’s day? The answer is undeniably yes.
These boys went out of their way to pull this amazing, tear-inducing play…and we should all take a leaf out of their book.
