With the ESPYS airing on Wednesday night, there were several bits that tried to make us laugh, but they only half-succeeded if they did at all. However, there was one moment that didn’t need to attempt to force a reaction from the viewers.

There’s no doubt that the most poignant and emotional part of the night was when Robin Roberts took the stage to receive the Arthur Ashe Award for courage:

Grantland’s Rembert Browne probably said it best with this tweet:

This is a woman who, after fighting to be at the top of her field, was diagnosed with cancer and then a blood disorder. And she still rose past that and didn’t let that defeat her.

It doesn’t matter who you are, you have to have the utmost respect and admiration as well as having to be inspired by what Roberts has accomplished and overcome.
