On this day in 1947, Jackie Robinson, age 28, becomes the first African-American player in Major League Baseball when he steps onto Ebbets Field in Brooklyn to compete for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Robinson broke the color barrier in a sport that had been segregated for more than 50 years. Exactly 50 years later, on April 15, 1997, Robinson’s groundbreaking career was honored and his uniform number, 42, was retired from Major League Baseball by Commissioner Bud Selig in a ceremony attended by over 50,000 fans at New York City’s Shea Stadium. Robinson’s was the first-ever number retired by all teams in the league.

Game Changer.

Today, I celebrate living for 25 years. God has certainly brought me on an incredible journey so far, but somehow I feel that in the story of my life, I’ve just finished the foreword.

46 years ago today - April 3rd, 1968 - back in Memphis, King gave his last sermon, saying, “We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now, because I’ve been to the mountaintop…And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we, as a people, will get to the promised land.”

If you’re going for it all, go for it. If you’re not then don’t bother. Save yourself the time if you’re not prepared to go the distance. Every shortcut eventually turns into a dead end. #stickyinspiration
