Legacy

So over the past couple of weeks I've spent a lot of time trying to learn about the lives of some of the great people in our history. Every person has a great story to their life. For every color barrier broken, there is a college career with 4 varsity letters. Everyone knows the stories of the kid who didn't make varsity as a sophomore, and of course the college dropout. Even in the stories that don't qualify as rags to riches, there is often a significant amount of adversity, which is accompanied by the perseverance to get through.

If you get some time today, or tomorrow, look up some legends. See where they came from, and how they got to where they are today. It will serve to enrich and motivate you.
