Jim's Rant For The Day. Great Moments are Born From Great Opportunity.

The movie Miracle is the true story of Herb Brooks, the player-turned-coach who led the 1980 U. S. Olympic hockey team to victory over the seemingly invincible Soviet squad. The above title was his opening words to his team before their impossible victory.

Over the past week we all glared at Pence wondering if he would choke and resign. Well he did. But perhaps we were glaring at the wrong person, we should have been staring at ourselves. We are up to bat now. The entire world is staring at us wondering if we will falter, give up and choke. Poor pitiful us. It shouldn't be our job. We risk our families and our comfortable lives, and on and on we go. But consider all the wars that were hosted by Europe and elsewhere over the years. How about poor pitiful them? Perhaps it just so happens that it's finally our turn at bat.

Great Moments are Born From Great Opportunity. We need to man up and do what we know is the right thing, no matter the risk. The entire planet is watching us, needing us to do the right thing. Ir's our turn at bat now. WE are the last chance.

Great Moments are Born From Great Opportunity.
