I admit it (those of you who know me know this): I am not a huge sports fan (except for the Soccer World Cup… and perhaps the Eurocup, that is underway now).
But last night many of our TuDiabetes members from the US Northeast had a reason to celebrate as the Boston Celtics took home the NBA Championship.
One thing among all of it caught my attention (quoting from the NY Times):
"… the Celtics were persistent, and unified, staying true to the South African theme of “ubuntu” that they established last fall. The word, introduced to the team by Rivers, literally means “I am because we are” and was invoked when the Celtics opened training camp, with the newcomers Garnett and Allen joining Pierce."
Thank Mick, our doc, for bringing up Ubuntu!
This made me think of TuDiabetes… how we are one big family where new folks that arrive become one with the ones that have been around. We all are it! We are the family.
So, congrats to the brothers (and sisters) out from the Northeastern part of the US for the victory last night. May you celebrate in Celtic style!
