Sports can be the great American escape. It seems in recent weeks, the news from around the world has been anything from encouraging. Wars, rumors of wars, religious persecution, kidnappings, dead viruses and chaos on the borders is enough to make people turn off the world.
Never ignore the really serious matters that surround us. Apathy is our own worst enemy and ignorance is its greatest weapon. Stay abreast of what’s happing in the world, even when most of it seems bad.
