It's been wonderful each morning of late to start my day with the Big Sky All-Stars. The photos are outstanding, the moments caught priceless, the joy and delight of the kids and their families shared with the entire city, state and beyond just has to make you smile. There's no better way to begin a day. You don't have to be a sports fan or have any connection to the families and players to be part of the experience. A sense of community, peace, and kinship with the world just sneaks up on you.
There will always be gloom, doom, and suffering. Thank you to The Billings Gazette for letting us all feel good about being Americans, enjoying — even by extension — the joy and glory of kids on a baseball field, having the time of their lives on warm summer days.
