Carpe diem

From the 'You Must Be a Fighter in Life' article in the Washington Post by By Nelson Hernandez.
In Season of Endings, Boxing Champ Tells Parkdale Grads to Seize Beginnings.

Or as I'd like to point out, make the most of current opportunity.

I think it is great when local sports, celebrity and political people actively give back to the community and help promote good role models.

Certainly, I think, Sugar Ray can. Darrell Green is another. And as the article points out, there are a whole host of people who do the same.

I particularly like the part about how two high school students, simply by chance and seizing the moment, were able to invite Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to speak at their graduation.

So, who spoke at my high school graduation?

Vincent Price. I know, not a sports figure but a noteworthy one none the less.
And totally cool too!

I credit the school administrators and more importantly the Price family for seizing the moment. You see, we had a bit of an inside scoop. His grandson was part of our graduating senior class.
