Jimmy V Week - Laugh, Think, Cry

Tonight, Jimmy V Week started on ESPN. This annual event celebrates the life of Jim Valvano and raises money for the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Tonight ESPN is replaying Jim Valvano's now famous (amongst basketball fans) 1993 ESPY speech given just eight weeks before he died of cancer. You don't need to know anymore about Jimmy V in order to appreciate his speech in which he encourages everyone to laugh, think, and cry everyday. The video has nothing to do with technology in education, but the speech is encouraging and inspiring so as I did last year I encourage you to take some time to watch it.
