By George, it was

Soon after George Foreman won the Olympics, we were shopping in Houston when my young son spotted him in the Galleria Mall. Someone had given him a small American flag and as Steven ran to him, he lifted t h e boy, waving the flag.  I just saw an interview where he explained his doing that after winning the Gold in the Olympics.He was only announcing the fact that he was American. For him to be representing the United States of America was exciting, but then to become heavyweight Champ was like make believe. He is a very successful business man today and warns that his punch is still, “Goodnight!”  Isn’t this what made America great?  Isn’t this what we’ve realized we had lost?  The power that propelled our nation into becoming the world’s best was NOT without a price. We still say we’re “Under GOD”, but really are under government!  The way I see it, we need to get back to work, running our own lives, earning through effort. We need to get real and give all “George Foremans” of every color, opportunity to succeed the right way, by earning it the hard way, donchaknow, Really!  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
