Youngster excited about making team

 

 

“If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.” Roopleen

Not all personal victories in life make the front page of the daily newspapers. Many of the more minor triumphs reach gigantic headline proportions especially when the person involved had to struggle to accomplish his goal. This youngster was beaming with pride and joy when he told his father recently that he finally made the school soccer team. His coach had told him previously that his size might limit him from playing. But he told me that his drive and spirit won him a place on the team. He said he never gave up trying. — gc
