Nelson Mandela is a hero of mine. May God bless & keep him.

This is from a friend in North Carolina who is starting a great new project for Columbia:

“I’m sure you’ve seen/heard this many times and many more over the last few days, but thought about Ball Project and what you are doing and how important it is:

“Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.” ~Nelson Mandela

Keep up the good work!”

I am grateful for people like Mandela & friends like CL who can inspire, encourage & help others.
