"This is a safe place, the safety zone. There are no teams. It's just all of us trying to hear what we need to hear for the day," Caldwell said. "And what we get the most requests for is prayers for peace and confidence and I like helping (the players) feel that. For some of them, this is like an escape. They need this moment to be at peace and my heart is about their heart, not just about the basketball part of them, but the whole part of them that a lot of people might not pay much attention to.

I’m not particularly religious but thought this was a nice article just the same. I marvel at how they can have services together and then go at each other so hard just a short time later. When I say marvel I mean that as a positive. I don’t think I could find inner solace just before competing so I admire those who can. But then the WNBA has lots of things character-wise to embrace. I just wish more people would.

As long as participation is 100% voluntary, I'm fine with this. I imagine other players might be meditating or doing something like that to prepare.

I'm glad that this is offered, and I'm glad that it's voluntary.

Dorothy sits a few seats adjacent to me. She is a very sweet and humble lady. I'm glad someone wrote a feature on her.
