Signs of hope on the playing field

Yes, I absolutely believe that "kindness reigns!" Last night while watching the evening news, I called my 15-year-old daughter to watch the inspiring story about Lauren Hill of Mount St. Joseph. It was a hopeful story about a young college student with brain cancer who wanted the opportunity to play in her school's basketball game. We watched how both teams involved in the game came together to make Lauren's dream happen and how the huge gym in Cincinnati was filled with people supporting this brave young woman.

After all of the negative and overwhelming stories our children hear about and see on the news, I want my daughter to know and understand there really are more kind people in this world than we think.

And then to read the meaningful story about Michael Gardner in Dan Rodricks' column ("Terps could learn sportsmanship from high school boys," Nov. 3). We need to read and watch more stories about kindness in our world today. We need it now more than ever.

I'll have Mr. Rodricks' column out for my daughter to read later today when she gets home from school. Our children need to know it's not all bad out there.
