Sunday Inspiration: Courage!

Two inspirational men this Sunday morning. The first is Michael Sam, the star college football player about to be drafted into professional football.  Michael is not only perhaps the best defensive players in college football and one of the toughest men you’ll ever see, but he’s had the courage to tell the world he is also a gay man.

Dale Hansen, a sports anchor in Dallas, Texas showed courage, as well, when he gave this stunning tribute to Michael Sam. I hope you’ll listen to his statement because Mr. Hansen says what so many of us would like to say to those who dehumanize minorities of every and any kind. May we all have the courage to speak the truth and to support those who do.

    Bravo! I hope when the NFL draft commences, “my” football team, the Seattle Seahwks, draft him. Seattle & Washington state is very welcoming of ALL people.

    I wish more NFL players would come out and join ranks with this courageous man. I saw that an NBA player came out today as well. Hooray for him!

    I saw this commentary right after it first posted and I was so moved by it! Thank goodness there are those that can speak so well, in support of celebrating our differences instead of using them to divide us as humans. Bravo indeed!
