If you know me, you know I'm a Bears fan...so clearly my team isn't going to the Superbowl. A part of me is rooting for the Packers, even though they are sworn enemies of the Bears, since they are the NFC champs.
So...why am I writing about the Superbowl in this blog about domestic violence and the workplace? Because there's a young man named Will Gay who plays for the Steelers -- and I'm rooting for him on Sunday.
Why am I rooting for Will?
Take a look at the vignette below that he taped for The Women's Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh on the tragic death of his mother at the hands of her husband. It is a heartbreaking story and shows the effects domestic violence had on his life.
Will is a hero for speaking out for all the children who can't. Will is a hero for talking about his experiences when so many others cannot.
I am sure his mother is proud of him every day.
I am rooting for Will. Not only on Superbowl Sunday but everyday. And for everyone like Will who makes it.
