Today begins the sporting eveent that unites the entire world: the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Everyone despite race, ethnicity, nationality, and their political views come together to celebrate a global event for the first time on African soil. This is a symbol of unity and a demonstration of the good side of humanity. For all you soccer fans, games will be transmitted on ESPN. Enjoy a month full of soccer! Despite that today is a joyous day, there was tragedy as well. Nelson Mandela's great-grandaughter died in a car crash returning from the opening concert yesterday night. We keep former President Mandela and his family in our prayers.
