Hometown Heros

I am not much for sports that people find exciting. I was asked to shoot a boxing tournament. The lights were a pain and my timing was worse. But it was well worth it. Many of these kids would be into gangs or other trouble if it wasn't for lessons learned. It takes a lot of work and dedication. They learn sportsmanship, how to win and how to lose. I was amazed at how regulated and as one person said "it is safer than swimming." One thing I liked is the impression that I got from one teen. He said he used to into trouble, a lot. Then he learned how to tame and control his nature instead of it controlling him.

Saw this a lot.

Think this one says a lot without saying a word.
