Seahawks win Superbowl XLVIII
2014 World Champs!
When masses of encouraged, hopeful, and inspired people come together... there is nothing short of an energy charge that fills the air, and brings smiles everywhere.
A week ago Sunday the SeaHawks were on their way to SeaTac Airport. They were headed for New York, on a chartered Delta Air Lines flight. But let's back up just a bit...
What happened on the way to the airport was nothing short of amazing. As many of you know, I live in the city of SeaTac. Just a hop skip and jump to the airport. This particular morning I would be headed to the airport for a trip to Amsterdam. But before I could get out my driveway, I stood on the side of the street with my community as we cheered on the SeaHawks as they passed by on the way to the airport.
As I watched the crowd it made me think about the power of coming together for our team. We might not have the best team in the world...but they are "our" team.
Some may not agree with the way the coaches call the plays, but they are our coaches. For good or bad we are standing together for a common front... to cheer our team onto victory
They ARE the best team in the world!
This crowd made me wonder if one day we could come together as a country. We may not have the best country. Our leaders may make errors and not run things the way we want. But what if we could band together in strength and unity instead of griping about how bad we have it...what if we could carry that 12 man flag for our country...how cool would that be?
Win or lose, this day reminded me what we're all about. Community and the power of hope. Having fun for a common cause. This win was for all of Seattle. As I write this, fireworks are blasting and Seattle's streets are filled with fans. Everyone in celebration.
My neighbor asked a great question...
