High school basketball player passes ball to mentally challenged player on the other team

If all of our coaches, teachers and parents showed the same level of leadership, commitment and high moral standards as those who played a part in shaping the values of the young people in this video, I don't think we'd have to worry nearly as much about gun violence, gangs, drugs or a hundred other things that affect the adults our children become.

... like Mitchell's coach who was 110% committed to placing the morale of one student above winning.

... like Mitchell's parents who have obviously supported him and refused to allow his limitations to get in the way of him leading a full, productive and happy life.

... like the parents of those students who immediately and without reservation started to cheer for Mitchell the moment he took to the basketball coach.

... and like the parents of that young man from the opposing team who seized an opportunity to do something really wonderful for another human being.
