“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” MLK, Jr. 1963
It’s been well documented all the woes of 2008. Tomorrow we swear in a new president and we face some of the toughest times that Illinois has ever faced. Only time will tell what great things come from these times. See my previous post to see what I think can come from adversity.
I read a feature article on Manny Ramirez a couple of weeks ago and one quote caught me that gave me a hugh batch of respect for Mr. Manny-being-Manny. “My biggest dream is not to hit 500 home runs or 600, or 700, my dream is for God to give me enough health to watch my kids grow up, have a beer with them, watch them graduate. That’s my Hall of Fame.”
Great quote Manny, glad you did learn something from your days with the Tribe.
