What Is On the Heart of Maurice Clarett?
Let me continue to put things into perspective. I was going to talk about something completely different but I keep seeing the news speak of the three young men lost at sea in Florida. It makes me keep my situation in perspective. I can only imagine, along with everyone else, the amount of pain their families feel. I can only imagine that it would be extremely tough on any human being in that situation, not knowing if your child were alive.
That set of circumstances alone, shows that athletic careers, jobs on Wall Street, and all of the other things that people idolize and fantasize about mean absolutely nothing when it comes to one’s personal health, safety, and security. I am willing to bet my life that their families would give it all away for their safe return. That is an example of why I don’t want people to come here and feel sorry for me. There are much more important issues going on in the world. I am fortunate to be in this position of speaking over the phone to family in order to post this message.
When you think that you have it bad, life sure has a way of humbling you. It is always someone out there who has it worse. You have people all over the world with physical disabilities and others who are diagnosed with incurable cancers and diseases. I am here to let them know that I feel their pain. Maurice Clarett empathizes with them all. In Mexico, you have turf wars. In Zimbabwe, you have outrageous inflation. In Israel, they just stopped a small air assault over the Gaza strip. Russia and Georgia just recently calmed down. More soldiers just moved into Afghanistan. You have all types of eye opening situations going on throughout the world. Take some time to stop thinking about your own personal worries for a while, as I did, and take the time to realize how good you really do have it. Use that energy to keep building on to what is right in your life and understand that the world is bigger than you and your problems.
***My heartfelt prayers go out to the families of the missing boaters in the Gulf of Mexico.***
