Today is, of course, our speaker's bureau...where we have someone from the community come and speak to our guys. Last week instead of having a speaker, we took the guys and made sure they were all registered to vote. Today, we had a Doctor speak to the fellas. Doc grew up in Southeast D.C and was a high school basketball player himself, so I thought the guys could really relate. He spoke about his younger days, being a student-athlete and that day, when the air went out of the ball and he had to do something different with his life. It was a really good session. The guys asked questions afterward and Doc promised to come back to check on us.
