I was fortunate to photograph the girls‘ basketball state championships on Saturday. I was transfixed by the Blue Devils determination to win. In a society of participation trophy kids, I was enlightened by what I saw. In front of me were young people who were willing to put it all on the line, knowing things could go either way.

The lessons they learned from the game will stay with them, long into their “middle of the pack” years. Whether they had won or lost the big game, they’ll someday realize that they lived fully in the moment. Congratulations to a great group of girls, you have inspired us all.
