Still Crazy...

   When I was a kid back in Illinois, there was this crazy guy who managed to talk our local school board into the nuttiest idea ever. The plan was to let some dare devil jet flying lunatic give a speech about being successful to a bunch of inner city kids of which I was one.

       All I remember, was being told that we (Ulrich Elementary) would be having a special guest speaker. Later that same day we were all gathered together in the auditorium, well prepared to endure yet another lecture about socialism or communism or capitalism... either way we had enough paper wads, bubblegum, and candy to sit through anything they could throw at us.

       But what they threw at us was this black guy with the silliest British sounding name who flew jet planes as a test pilot. He went on and on about goals and what it takes to achieve them - about dreams and what we would have to do to live them out - about being a responsible person that our friends can count on when things get rough - about education and the need for it if we were ever going to be half of what we all thought we could be.

      This crazy guy went on and on about integrity and what this word means to them that have it. On and on about love, loyalty, honesty, daring to go for it, and what one must instill within oneself to be able to bounce back from defeat, failure, and lack of opportunity - How we must rise again and fight with all we've got no matter how difficult the challenge. This crazy guy unknowingly changed the lives of many of us that day. His words were permanently embedded in some of our minds and hearts enabling at least some of us to dream bigger, be truer, and ride higher than we ever had before his lecture.

                Thank you ever so much, Mr. Montel Williams, for caring about us kids!
