Little League World Series: Did You See It?

Watching the Little League World Series this year, I got to see sports reveal a spiritual awakening. Thirteen young men from Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West seemed destined to show us the promise of the potential hidden within us all. As I watched them make up lost runs, and strike out dangerous hitters, the athletic strength of their actions became mute. All that was left was the poise they showed, and the determination to win, despite all odds. The toughness to go out and earn that which they desired stood out as an intelligent and disciplined exhibition of human character and greatness.

These beautiful, strong, young, black, men gave us a glimpse of the promise for the future. A promise that their troubled Southside Chicago neighborhood seems to deny. We too are in a World Series. We face a series of challenges such as racism, poverty, police brutality, and an unjust system. These social poisons threaten to kill our world. I am left to wonder if you saw yourself in these young men. I wonder if in seeing them overcome, you saw yourself overcoming some of the obstacles in your life.

I wonder, did you see it?
