Through all of this, I have noticed a movement. The love for John has always run deep for those who have met him…but the other day, I realized how far it has really reached. I was sitting in a meeting at work this past Monday and conveniently noticed something amazing during the question and answer portion of the event…wrist bands. Beautiful, blue wrist bands with “Team Goddard” stretched across them. As hands kept going up to ask a question, I kept noticing that same band…on everyone. As I left the meeting, I saw it on more and more people walking around the office. When I logged in to the social media sites…I saw this…everywhere:
Do you see what I am saying? Do you see what I see? This movement has taken over and is a force we are so thankful to see. It was all started by the boys who love him most back in Indiana and has now gone nationwide. It is unreal how a simple wristband can speak volumes. People who we do not even know are wearing and asking for them. My mom told me an amazing story of a woman she met tonight who works for Purdue University (Boiler Up!). She even wanted to know all about John and yes, buy some wrist bands. It is a simple piece of rubber, around the wrist...it means more to us than any of you will ever really know.
