And I've seen them draw closer together to support not only the team member in crisis, but also those left in the office to get things done.
That's what happened on Sunday, as Louisville came out on fire in the second half and defeated Duke to earn a trip to NCAA Final Four. And it's what happened at the News after my daughter was born, as the sports team produced high-quality stories and page designs for the paper's readers.
I hope Kevin Ware will recover completely from his injury and will be able to excel in both his basketball career and all other aspects of his life. As he heals and returns to former activities, I'm sure he'll remember those teammates who kept doing the job when he was in a time of crisis.
As for me, every time I look at my healthy, intelligent, beautiful, miracle daughter, I will, as always, think of the family and friends who helped us during those two scary weeks about a dozen years ago. But I'll also remember the work team that provided a different kind of comfort — and taught me lessons I'm still using, at home and in the office, every day.
