They play hockey, these kids. They love the game. They love each other, and with courage. Thus, when their thirteen-year-old teammate kept getting taunted by opposing players because he’s black, these white kids said no. Not gonna take it. He’s our friend, so leave him alone.

Glorious Glenstone: An Immersive Experience of Art in 230 Acres of Natural Beauty

Glenstone is the new museum in Potomac in Maryland they’ve built to display the superlative art they’ve acquired over the years.
