Faith in Humanity is Restored by This Touching Display of Sportsmanship.
In a world where much is about competition and winning at all costs, this story restores faith in humanity. As you watch this video, see if you know someone who is like this humble athlete.
Would you be willing to give up winning a race or risk the humiliation of coming in dead last to help someone else? Many would not. However, isn't that what life is all about. Isn't it about loving our neighbor as ourselves (Matt 22:37)? I believe that as we help and serve others, with love in our hearts, we always feel better about ourselves and those we serve. It brings us closer in love to God and humanity. Maybe this video will touch you to do something similar...

More About this Video:
This inspiring video was first published on YouTube on June 6, 2012. Meghan Vogel, while running the 3,200 meter race (2 miles), fell behind to the last of the pack. Towards the end of the race, Arden McMath, an opponent ahead of her, had problems and fell to the track. Almost without thinking, Meghan helped her up, basically carried her to the finish line and made sure Arden was first to finish.
Normally the Ohio High School Athletic Association would disqualify both of them for contact during the race. However, because of this show of selflessness, neither were disqualified. Read more about it at the Huffington Post.
