Hearts are breaking across Broncos Country with the passing of Demaryius Thomas. He was only 33 years old and yet he affected so many in his short life. His legacy is not only derived from what he did on the field, but what he did off the field. Looking through social media, the common thread in nearly every post is the word "kind." He smiled at everyone and everything and he was genuinely kind to all. It didn't matter your age, ethnicity, orientation, abilities, or any other "factor" which can cause some folks to pause and consider their reactions... DT was open to all.
There aren't many people in this world who can match the athlete that was Demaryius Thomas, but we can all strive to match the spirit of kindness that was Demaryius Thomas. It would be the best way to honor him and pay tribute. It starts with a smile and continues with genuine kindness.
Be like DT. Be Kind.
