I recently came across this article and felt it too important not to share. Reasons and thoughts may differ, but if your parents attended your basketball games, and/or other sports and events, it probably meant something to you. From elementary school through college, my parents were at most every basketball game, track meet, or other sport I was involved. It really does mean a lot!
From the article and author Caitlin Gallagher:
At every game, I would search for their faces in the stands. When I found them, I knew I mattered. I knew my dreams mattered.
