Go Ravens!

Congratulations to the Baltimore Ravens for their latest victory that sends them to the Super Bowl! They have shown pluck and spirit – typically Baltimorean!

Baltimore has an amazing spirit: it’s home to great universities and cultural institutions, it’s a hub of biomedical research and high-tech innovation, but it’s also a comfortable, livable city that doesn’t take itself too seriously. For many of us, Baltimore is not just “the land of pleasant living,” it’s the land of opportunity. It’s a place where Murthy Law Firm founder, Sheela Murthy, could start a law firm on her dining room table and build it into a flourishing immigration practice, now employing more than 80 lawyers, paralegals, and support staff. Sheela has made Baltimore her adopted home, and she wants to give back – and does – to the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, the United Way, the Women’s Law Center, and many other causes here in our community.

Likewise, the Baltimore Ravens give their time, talent, and treasure to build a better Baltimore, through scholarships; grants to education, fitness, and medical programs; and charitable partnerships that help people in need. Among their recent grantees are: the Baltimore Curriculum Project, BMoreFit (Baltimore Fitness Academy), Friends of Patterson Park, Living Classrooms Foundation, Maryland School for the Blind, and many other worthy causes. As high-profile leaders in our community, the Ravens set a good example of service to others, showing what teamwork can do, on and off the playing field.

Whether or not you are a fan of American football, it is impossible to love Baltimore and not be – at least a little – caught up in Purple Pride. For the next two weeks, Baltimore is united behind our team. Let’s hope this spirit of teamwork lives beyond Super Bowl Sunday.
