What world needs is love, sweet love

These words, "What the world needs now is love, sweet love" are from a popular Wynonna Judd song. When I saw the story about Notre Dame's coach, Charlie Weis, and the 10-year-old boy who was dying from a brain tumor, her song popped into my mind.
In this day of selfishness and greed, there are still stories about love. Sports have become a win at any cost philosophy. Good role models are becoming a thing of the past, but this is a story that inspires the heart.
This is a story about a coach who gave one little dying boy one last wish. His wish was to call the first play of the ball game. He told Coach Weis that he wanted to pass. Pass to the right.
