Today at work I went to a farewell event for the VP of my area. She had worked for a lot of years at our University and had a number of very close friends. A few of them in their remarks were brought to tears. Someone next to me, asked why they were crying.
While I don’t usually admit this type of thing in public, I’m definitely a crier. My mom’s side of the family is happy to take the blame, but I’ll be completely honest that I’m not afraid to cry when something touches me. No, I wasn’t crying today for this departed VP. I didn’t know her that well, but I did appreciate the great food they had at the party. However, I did cry today reading this incredible sports story.
