Why is the American Flag at half mass today 1/26/2021


Recommended Posts

Until recently I had no idea what Hank Arron went through during his career . Here was a man that knew real hate and he faced head on with grace style and dignity. I saw a commentary this week and man recalled buying a car at his dealership but had to leave it overnight for service, he could not believe it when Hank showed up, drove him home and the next morning came back picked him up and drove him back to pick up his car.

Amid death threats, racial slurs, baseball legend Hank Aaron let his play do the talking

A young Hank Aaron at a train station leaving to play for the Ind Clowns in the Negro Leagues. 1950

Arron said everything he owned was in that knapsack, a shirt an extra pair of pants and a ham sandwich his mother had made for the train ride.
