Reggie's Play for Keeps
Organized by: Tresia Walters
I am writing this article on behalf of a very deserving and humbling human being. Since I have known this young man, I have learned a lot of things from just looking in on his life, no matter what has been thrown his way he conditions himself to cope with it not asking why anytime along the way. He humbles himself to experiencing new people and new things no matter how many times he's been let down along the way. He has always been the type of person that fights for what he believes in and strives for excellence along the way. Since the day I met this young man I can remember myself saying, "when I discover my purpose here on earth I hope that my will, desire, and compassion to fulfill it burn as deep as the fire within His heart as he's out on that field chasing down those footballs.!" Now the reason I'm writing this is because one I know he would never want to do it for himself and two because I believe in the power of love, compassion, and understanding. I still have hope and faith in humanity and I still believe that there are some genuine, caring individuals out there that want nothing more than to be able to help others along this journey called life so that we may all be happy and pursue our dreams. Well my dear friend has ran into yet another problem on his way and although I can't help him financially, I figured any little effort helps so here's the issue. He is a college sophomore pursuing his dreams of both a higher education and hopefully a football career if that's where his legs lead him, but because his paperwork fell through and he doesn't have enough time to correct it in order to be accepted into this academic school year with his financial aid, he has to come up with the money to pay in full or he won't be eligible until the following school year and I can honestly see this crushing him inside. He comes from a single parent home and doesn't have anywhere else to turn financially, so if you find it in your heart that you may be fortunate enough to help him along his journey then please help. No number is too big or too small & even if you can't do anything financially, sharing this and praying for his journey along the way would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you in advance, even if you're just reading this.!
