Winning isn't the most important thing

I saw this story on the news this morning, and it really is a great example of what it is to Be Good. Be Strong.  We can only hope that what we teach our children guides them to be "that kid" in this story...."that kid" being either the young man that doesn't give up and gets out there on the match to wrestle OR the young man that the coaches choose to wrestle in this match because he just gets it and knew exactly what he needed to do in that moment.  They are both incredible examples of courage and compassion and kindness. 

Great story.  Great lesson.  Please take a couple of minutes to watch.

Be good.  Be Strong.
