I stumbled across this image on the website Boston.com this morning. While the photo (Jasper Juniens/Getty Images), is wonderful, it was the caption that really caught my eye:
“Kids enjoy a soccer game on June 21, 2009 in Botshabelo near Bloemfontein, South Africa. The large black settlement of Botshabelo, set up by the (then apartheid) government, is one of the towns that have produced soccer players for South Africa’s Premier Soccer League such as Kaizer Chiefs player Ditheko Mototo.”
Just imagine — the simple gift of a soccer ball could one day lead to someone’s successful career…
Travel With Balls!
Peace & Blessings,
