Soccer World Cup 2010

As the Soccer World Cup came to an end today, we were once again reminded of Anuj.

Just as this great tournament brought millions of fans from all around the world together to share in the triumph and sorrows of their teams, those of us close to Anuj, were reminded of how he too had this amazing knack of bringing people together.

And if you didn’t know this about Anuj, he himself was a star on his high school soccer team. Just as the two goalies made spectacular saves in today’s game to keep their countries' hopes and dreams alive, we found ourselves thinking of a young Anuj who represented his high school as a goalie during his junior and senior years of high school and made glorious saves of his own to keep his team in the games.
