Just as I was feeling down realizing that there would be no gold medalist to watch tonight, I came across this story of a college guy who should receive the gold for putting 2 and 2 together and feeding thousands. Food Recovery Network is an organization that donates food from college campuses to the hungry.
Leadership is about not being afraid of having a really good idea and making it happen, even if no one else has thought of it before (but maybe they should have.) It's about inspiring your peers to do even more.
Thank you, Ben Simon, for doing the equivalent of a perfect freestyle skiing run or an impeccable "twizzle" or racing the fastest down a bobsled course. You put yourself out there every day without any expectation of a hometown heroes welcome.
I'm cheering you on whether you're in Sochi or not. College Park is equally impressive.
