"Austic Teen's Hoop Dreams"

As per the Lenten custom, I’m taking a one-day Sunday break from the Carbon Fast (since happily Sundays are always a feast and never a fast). This also gave me an excuse to share a video Val MG posted on her blog earlier this week.

Jason McElwain is the manager for his high school’s basketball team. He’s also autistic, which hasn’t hampered his love of the game or his hard work for the team. For the last game of the season the team coach decided to let Jason suit up with the other players. It was a sweet and unexpected gesture. But not as unexpected as what happened next . . .

Today’s mitzvah: Share something inspiring with a friend.
