Thank you Jackie

Without this man, America would be a far worse place.  Not just baseball.  Our entire way of life. 

He opened doors that were closed to many Americans.  If he faltered, if he lost his temper, if he did one thing “wrong”, it would’ve pushed integration back decades.

Yet he held firm, and today we’re all better for it.

This man is not just a number.  He is a legend, and the fact that like anyone else, he was just a human being, should give everybody pause as to what they can accomplish with their lives.

“A life is unimportant, except in the impact it has on others’ lives.” – Jack Roosevelt Robinson.
