this is a picture of MLK
and his daughter Yolanda
in their backyard.
One of my favorite baseball players was Hank Aaron who in his book “I Had a Hammer”
wrote that when he was a teenager he never dreamt of playing in the Major Leagues
because at that time Blacks were not allowed to play.
Hank is still alive
and a member of the MLB Hall of Fame.
Which shows you how quickly
you didn’t even know you had,
can come true.
imagine the things today’s teenagers
can’t even conceive themselves achieving today
due to a plethora of man-made rules
rooted in bizarre and old school reasons
like race or sex or religion.
And then think how much better life will be
when we destroy those artificial boundaries that hold tomorrow’s heroes back
like they’re held back today.
