Never Give Up, No Matter What....

NEVER GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT, FINISH THE RACE In 1992, Barcelona, Spain hosted the world by staging the summer Olympic games. All eyes were on a certain athlete who had won the first round and the quarter-finals of the 400 meters dash comfortably. And so came the semi-finals which many had expected him to win. But with 150 meters to go, he tore his hamstring. He limped, trotted, and finally fell in great pain. The stretcher-bearers came to take him off, but he rejected the stretcher and started limping off on his own. Suddenly, a man came to the tracks after he had evaded security. As the athlete felt a hand on his shoulders, he shrugged. It was his father. 'Don't do this son', he pleaded. 'No, I won't give up', he replied. 'Then we are in this together', he assured. So, father and son dragged themselves toward the finish line, the latter in great pain. Finally, they got to the finish line to a standing ovation of 65,000 people. Derek Redmond did not come out first, but he finished the race. Have a historic week ahead. # HistoryVille
