April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day – A True American Hero

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.

ImageBack in 2012, I made this post: Joe Black on Jackie Robinson’s Impact 

It’s a testament from a teammate on what Jackie Robinson did for his own life. 

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.
