Some words to live by

This Sunday, April 15, is the 60th anniversary of the day that Jack Roosevelt "Jackie" Robinson became the first black American to play in baseball's Major Leagues since the late 19th century.

Here is a great quote from him -- from a letter he wrote to a young fan in September 1957, as reported in a story by Bob Nightengale in yesterday's (April 13) USA Today:

"I learned a long time ago that a person must be true to himself if he is to succeed. He must be willing to stand by his principles even at the possible loss of prestige. He must first learn to live with himself before he can hope to live with others."

Good words, no? for all orthodox Catholics and pro-lifers to remember and to put into practice.
