Lighten Up: Learning from Kids

Our football team in Minnesota (the Vikings) lost in the first round of the playoffs last Sunday in a most heartbreaking way due to a missed field goal. The kicker (Blair Walsh) has had to endure some pretty harsh criticism on social media, which is exactly what you would expect. But then these kids come along and show everyone what kindness and love and forgiveness looks like. Whoever is teaching these children: well done.
