Being from Selma, Alabama, I have always been intrigued by the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I have read his autobiography and other biographies, I’ve listened to his speeches and sermons, and I have done three presentations on Dr. King. Any person who makes an impact on the world in a way like King did is a hero of mine. His words and actions changed the course of history for the better, and the world has taken notice ever since.
If you don’t know, baseball is my favorite sport. It always has been and always will be. I was a pitcher up until high school and decided to quit because I didn’t see a future in it. In addition to not seeing a future, I lost my passion for the game. Instead of going through another baseball season I went and got a job so I could make some money to buy my first car.
The Atlanta Braves were my favorite team growing up. But now that I live in Colorado, I feel my new favorite team should be the Colorado Rockies. Here is a conversation I had with a friend from Georgia today.
(Above the talk about the Rockies’ baseball season in that text message, we talked about balloon boy. You forgot about him, didn’t you? Oh, and Nate’s last name isn’t really, Hump. It’s Humphreville. I thought I should let you know that.)
What is something you thought you would end up doing later on in life when you were growing up, but ended up losing a passion for?
Sitting in Dallas thinking about the great city I just left. Many great things happened in Atlanta and here are just some of the things I will miss.
I will miss my church.
I will miss my friends.
I will miss The Varsity.
I will miss southern hospitality.
What is your favorite thing about the city you live in?
