"Let us be enraged by injustice, but let us not be destroyed by it!" @romanjisraelesq is one of the most powerful movies I have seen lately. Too few people have the strength and fortitude to hold on to their beliefs. I left the theater both heartbroken and inspired! 🎥👍
Good luck to Kamiakin Braves @xy01z Xavier at the takedown wrestling tournament today! "X" has dedication and heart that every athlete wishes they had because it can't be taught! I have no doubt that the next time I see you will be at the T-Dome! Keep inspiring others with your focus and your passion! Get it done today! #Training4TheDome
Thank you SJPF, the Portuguese Players Union for the warm welcome and sharing the successes and challenges of building the women’s game in Portugal. We are at a tipping point and its players and leaders like you who will help prove quality, talent and value of women’s football worldwide. #FIFPRO #FIFA
For the past few days, I have been thinking about all the uncomfortable situations myself and/or my teammates have experienced throughout the years with trainers, doctors, coaches, executives and even teammates. From inappropriate comments, unwanted advances and grabs of the ass to coaches and GMs and even press officers speaking about players "tits” and physical appearance, sexual harassment is rampant in the sports world. I always felt I’d “handled it” and stood up for myself in those situations, but there were never any consequences for the perpetrators. That needs to change. Silence will not change the world! #MeToo
If you need hope and inspiration, meet Hyppolite Ntigurirwa, a young man from Rwanda who lived through unspeakable atrocities during the genocide. He is filled with courage and love and his story brings hope to us all. I was honored to introduce him at the last session of #OYW2017.
