Walking Through the Valley, which draws its name from Psalm 23, is where I make my more personal posts. I hold Jackie Robinson to be one of the greatest men of the twentieth century. He should be admired and emulated by athletes and non-athletes alike.

If you aren’t familiar with the story of Jackie Robinson, read one of the many stories you’ll see tomorrow, or get a book about him. But you can start with that short piece I wrote.
