The US women’s hockey team fights the good fight — and wins – Chicago Tribune

It doesn’t matter if you never planned to watch a minute of the Women’s World Hockey Championships, or if you knew they began Friday in Plymouth, Michigan, or if you cared about the fact that the Americans’ defense of their championship was in peril. What you need to know: If you have a daughter, a young daughter in particular, the women who will take the ice wearing sweaters that say “USA” are heroes.

Your daughter owes a debt to these women. You owe a debt to these women. With not an ounce of hyperbole, they sacrificed so others might prosper. They risked personal gain so future generations could advance. They said they wouldn’t play so others could.

And they didn’t waver.

Sound trite? Fine. Listen to them, and think about what this stand meant.
