Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn't even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball. However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay's life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact. The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed. The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay. As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow groundball right back to the pitcher. The game would now be over.
Everyday we have choices. And it's our choices, along with our thoughts which lead us to our circumstances. We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the 'natural order of things.' A wise man once said every society is judge by how it treats it's least fortunate amongst them. Let's all CHOOSE to make a difference today.
