Sport unifies powerfully. Hustle and effort are admired and revered. Cheating is abhorred. The rules apply the same to everyone. We don’t care where our teammates came from, what they believe, or what they stand for because we stand together. Jerseys make skin color invisible. We stand united against attack. We cheer. We applaud. We pick up the fallen. We encourage the mistaken. We all feel the sting of defeat.
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governance in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” – Nelson Mandela

State District Judge Jennifer Bennett was at the State Fair of Texas this fall, watching a horse show near the petting zoo, when she got a call from a detective who needed a warrant signed.
Yes, it was after work. And yes, she was busy. Still, the judge made her to way to the edge of the fair, plopped down on a curb and waited for the detective to arrive with the paperwork.

What’s happening in Baltimore is being felt by police departments across the country.
“I’ve had lots of conversations over the last two weeks with a lot of rank and file officers and officers are like this is not what I signed up for they’re looking to get out,” says Pete Schulte. “It’s that bad. In the 17 years I’ve been an officer, I’ve never seen morale this bad across the board.”
