Day 916: ‘Don’t Have The Money’
Yesterday I gave you some words from beyond the grave as well as explained how my wife’s milk evaporated on the way home from the grocery store.
Speaking of fun experiences…
For Halloween I’m flying to Canada and dressing up as the current interest rate.
I’m going to trick or treat telling people they’re about to lose their house
Your One PROFIT ACCELERATION THING Today Is:
‘’A Powerful Read’
Last week we had an incredible event in Cancun Mexico with our high end coaches.
Many stood up, thanked us and explained how they’ve been with us for over ten years.
Hard not to get philosophical and think about how lucky we are.
Also feel grateful for many of the choices we’ve made and the people we’ve helped along the way.
This hit me in the feels… thought I’d share it with you.
Would you make the same choice?
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one student delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended.
After extolling school and dedicated staff, he shared a question:
‘When not interfered by outside influence, everything nature does is perfection.
Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do.
Where is the natural order of things in my son?’ The audience was stilled by query.
The father continued. ‘I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.’
Then he told the following story:
Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, ‘Do you think they’ll let me play?’ I knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a father I also understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of handicaps.
I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play.
The boy looked around for guidance and said, ‘We’re losing by six runs, and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team, and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning…’
Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt… I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart.
The boys saw my joy at my son being accepted.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.
In top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from the stands.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay’s team scored again.
Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base, and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.
At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game? 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 ground ball right back to the pitcher.
The game would now be over.
The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman. Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.
Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman’s head. Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, ‘Shay, run to first!
Never in his life had Shay run that far, but he made it to first. He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.
Everyone yelled, ‘Run to second, Shay, run to second!’
Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base.
By time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball. The smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team.
He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman’s head.
Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home. All were screaming, ‘Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay’
Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, ‘Run to third!
As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, ‘Shay, home! Run home!’
Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team.
‘That day’, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, ‘the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world’.
Shay didn’t make it to another summer.
He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his mom tearfully embrace her hero of the day!
Make it a Shay Day.
