Madiba...

Happy birthday, Tata.  For 30 years you have been a guiding light, an inspiration in perseverance and patience and faith.

The world, my world, has been better for your existence.

Thank you for your unconquerable soul.

William Ernest Henley. 1849–1903InvictusOUT of the night that covers me,  Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be  For my unconquerable soul.In the fell clutch of circumstance         5  I have not winced nor cried aloud.Under the bludgeonings of chance  My head is bloody, but unbowed.Beyond this place of wrath and tears  Looms but the Horror of the shade,  10And yet the menace of the years  Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.It matters not how strait the gate,  How charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate:  15  I am the captain of my soul.

Throwing a Ball at Problems...

“It’s a tool we can use to teach kids about their surroundings. In basketball, if you don’t look after the people around you, you’re not going to be successful. It’s that simple. It’s not a man-on-man game, it’s not a one-person game; you can be the best player on the planet, but without a good team, you’re not going to win.”
