Fair warning: this video is going to make you cry. They’ll be happy tears, but if you’re at work you might want to put on some sunglasses or wait until your lunch break. Better yet, gather your coworkers for a little Monday inspiration.
There are a few things that captivate me about this story.
First, this didn’t just happen. Jack’s mom and dad made it happen. They took the initiative to contact the University of Nebraska. They took the first step and were proactive on his behalf.
Second, there is power in sharing our suffering. By stepping out there and sharing their story, Jack and his parents have gathered a team around them, literally and figuratively.
Third, there are few things in life as wonderful as the joy of cheering someone else on.
So, how can we build a team around our kids? How can we share our struggles and be open an honest with our community of friends? How can we cheer on our children today? Click here to share your ideas!
