Motivation Monday #6 - Rise and Rise Again {February 10, 2014}

When I was 17, I pitched for the Alabama state softball team that won the Dixie Youth World Series softball tournament. 

Our team's "theme song" was Never Surrender by Corey Hart. 

We had a player on our team, Sandy, whose parents were deaf, and Sandy taught us the sign language to the song. 

In the field, in the dugout, during warm-ups, we would do the sign language for the two words, Never Surrender.

As I watched the video clip below, I thought of two things.
1. I thought of the past and a group of 16- and 17-year-olds who truly believed in never giving up. 
2. I also thought of the present and the courage displayed by Tim Dawkins. In my blog post from yesterday, I write an open letter to Tim thanking him for his courage. 

And to you, friend, reading today's post:

Never, never, never give up.
