Something Inspiring For Your Friday

At a teacher’s meeting today our school president showed us this video. It is about a kid named Conner Long and his brother Cayden, who has cerebral palsy. Conner is a young athlete who includes his brother in all of his activities. He participates in triathlons  bringing his brother along on rafts, strollers, etc.

Conner gets it. There are some things much, much more important than winning. In fact, I would argue that in the “game of life,” this kid is in first place. Have a look. Get the tissues ready, because this really gets at what it means to be human. You can even follow their current activities via Team Long Brothers.

I had trouble embedding the video, so you will have to click on this link from ESPN. It is worth watching!
