“What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” – Henry David Thoreau
For the past two years I’ve had the privilege of working with the Miracle League of Tuscaloosa. For those of you who don’t know, the Miracle League is a baseball league for children through adults with special needs. The motto of this organization is, “Every Child Deserves the Chance to Play Baseball”. In our world today, there is so much divisiveness. Too much emphasis is placed on our differences. One of the most amazing things about this organization is its’ ability to break down barriers with just a ball and a bat. At every game, I witness true humanity. When you see a child that is more focused on giving every single person along the baseline a high five instead of being focused on beating the other team, it reminds you of what should be important in life: loving other people.
Let’s all learn from the players of the Miracle League.
To the players of Miracle League, you truly are my heroes.
