In focusing on the business of Super Bowl this year, I overlooked the athletes and the Hollywood ending to the real life story of a Super Bowl Champion, Baltimore Raven, Michael Oher.

As much as I loved The Blind Side , what I love about this pic is how much it teaches us…

How one woman’s humanity, enabled a young man, through access to education, to envision a future … and I got to ‘participate’ in their journey (via film and Twitter).
