Son of the Congo

So we all know my love for the Okc Thunder and I know what all Oklahomans know.....that our guys are special! Our Okc Thunder has some of the most genuine players in the league and Son of the Congo just highlighted that times a MILLION!
This documentary about Serge Ibaka ripped my heart out.....
It made me sad for Serge as it showed how when he goes home to the Congo all everyone wants from him is money. People literally follow him around yelling at him to give them money. You see how that weighs on him and not in how you would expect it to. He wants to help everyone but he can't and you can see how that weighs on his heart. While in the Congo he helps fit people with hearing aides and watching him be apart of what for most is the first time they ever hear ...... it's strong. Powerful.
Also Serge donates $500,000 of supplies to an orphanage that he visits in the Congo and the emotion he displays is what we all feel or should feel when we see how awful it is for those children. It's heartbreaking.

One of my favorite quotes is when Serge is referring to the Playoffs last year when he came back to play even with a calf injury and he says "Sleeping on the street, having no food, being alone in the Congo is hard.... sacrificing for my teammates in the NBA Playoffs.... no thats not hard". 

You just need to watch this documentary for yourself and you will be touched, I promise. I could go on and on about how much I loved it and how much it touched me but you need to watch it for yourself.
All I could think about while watching this is... what am I doing? I wish my life could matter or make a difference in someone else's life. Food for thought.
