Karen forwarded this truly heartwarming story about Bill Schuffenbauer, a member of the U.S. bobsled team in Vancouver. Here is a guy, age 36, who could have wasted his entire life. He came from a truly terrible background, and he pulled himself up, and he is competing in his third Olympics. And he and his family are sacrificing hard for him to be there. While that is not itself unusual, his story is quite an inspiration.
I'm rooting for him to win a medal this week.
