Hope everyone had a great 2023 and that your year is off to a good start. 2024 marks our 17th year publishing the newsletter and we would like to thank our various sponsors and content contributors. 2024 also marks another year of elections in the United States… Having just celebrated the MLK holiday, I hope we will reflect the words “content of their character” contained in Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous I Have a Dream speech “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Just last week Coach Saban, The GOAT (the greatest of all time), announced his retirement from coaching football at the University of Alabama. A friend of mine’s son that played for him shared the following portion of one of Coach Saban’s speeches with me. "If you want to be happy for a day, play golf-happy for a week, buy a new car-happy for a month, get a dog- But if you want to be truly happy, answer this, is anyone going to miss you when you're gone?" Reflecting on the above, two questions come to mind…. What’s the content of your character? and How will you be remembered?
