Drop the Hammer
I have written earlier of the hammer and the sledge as symbols of strength. The boy in the photo, Stephen Kinsey, entered Bronco Stadium with the team on Saturday’s game. Stephen has cancer, and he wanted to visit the Broncos as part of the Make a Wish Foundation.
I am an advocate of the big stick as a means to fitness and strength. I also believe in the effectiveness of the big stick as a weapon. But the photo reminds us that each day is a gift, and I hope it causes each one of us to think, “How am I making someone else’s life better? How am I using my strength (and skills, talent, resources) to help those who are less fortunate?”
