Knock It Out Of The Park

Maybe you wish you could have a do-over for the job interview that you were late for.  Maybe you wish you could go find the "one that got away".

There's a guy that is actually getting a second chance like that to answer this "what if" question.

His name is Adam Greenberg.  Several years ago he was a new member of the Chicago Cubs.  It was his first major league at bat, a pitcher for the Marlins threw the first pitch, and hit him in the head.  He went down, and that was pretty much it for his baseball career.

Well until now.  The same team that threw that first pitch at him is giving him a second chance.  This coming Tuesday he gets one "at-bat".

Imagine that walk from the dugout to the batter's box.  It's for all of us who've wanted a second chance, and wondered "what if"...

KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK!!

Not For Sale

I'm always amazed at how much you do to make a difference.  One of the "difference makers" that you hear on K-LOVE is Natalie Grant.  She's a musician, a mother, and an advocate in the find to end modern slavery.

She was "inspired" to get involved after a trip abroad.

There was a development in that yesterday.  The President spoke at the United Nations calling for an end to modern slavery, and what he said reminded me that this isn’t just a problem in other countries.

He said,  “The bitter truth is that trafficking also goes on right here in the United States…We can’t ask other nations to do what we are not doing ourselves. Nations must speak with one voice — our people and our children are not for sale.”

There are many different ways you can help the cause.  This one young girl even started a lemonade stand and raised $50,000 for the cause!
