Persevere like Jackie Robinson

Today, Major League Baseball commemorates the 64th anniversary of Hall of Famer, Jackie Robinson, for breaking the color barrier as the first black player to play in MLB since the 1880’s.  He was also the first black television analyst in Major League Baseball, and the first black vice-president of a major American corporation (Chock Full O’Nuts in 1957).  In the 1960s, Jackie helped establish the Freedom National Bank, an African-American-owned financial institution based in Harlem, New York.  This, from a man born into a family of sharecroppers.  Jackie Robinson is definitely someone who overcame substantial obstacles, including death threats and horrific slurs from racially charged fans.  But he persevered and won a World Championship ring when the Dodgers beat the Yankees in the 1955 World Series.  So if there’s anything in your life that needs more perseverance to get you through, think of Jackie Robinson and stay the course.  And do so with beautiful thighs & biceps with today’s 5 Minute Fat Burning Workout #51.  Enjoy – R
