Heartbreak in Indianapolis

James Dungy, eldest son of Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, died Monday at his apartment in Florida. He was 18.

Too often when writing about football, we throw around words like "heartbreaking" or "devastating loss" to describe ultimately trivial events. Then something like this happens to remind us what the words really mean. When we stand before God and he asks us who we are and what we did in our time here, he doesn't want to hear about how we found ways to win. He wants to hear how we found ways to love.
