I know that certain elements of this blog will take issue with me discussing Dean Smith, but I couldn’t care less.

I read this article early today and it haunting me. Absolutely heartbreaking. I went through this with someone very close to me and I had chills running down my spine. Hearing the stories about a man that was one of the true icons of college basketball begin his descent into place where he can only look at picture books makes me well up. The powerlessness of the family and the community of supporters around him is just staggering.

Life is often so beautiful, yet to indiscriminate and brutal at the same time. Every moment is precious and my deepest sympathies go out to Dean Smith’s family as they have a LOT more to endure before this is over.

Anyway, thanks for posting the link JP. I hope we can find a cure some day. Hurry please.
