THE KICK OFF

“There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.”

Once upon a time I had a job delivering blood for The American Red Cross. One of my stops was The Ohio State University Hospital, located near the famous football stadium where every fall over a hundred thousand fans jam together to watch the Buckeyes kick off their season.

On this particular day, my delivery van was parked next to an ambulance. And there I witnessed the most inspiring kick off in the history of baby booties. A medical team was unloading an infant. The baby was in a glass bubble, wearing a pink outfit and booties. There were tubes and wires all over the body of this little one. I said a prayer as I watched her tiny legs kick. As they began to move toward the hospital, one of her booties flew off. I had a very special feeling at that moment, this kid was going to be all right.

The lesson for all of us, just keep kicking.

As a wise man said long ago, “It’s always too soon to quit.”
