Jackie Robinson Day

April 2011 021 Jackie Robinson 42.jpg

Today we honor Jackie Robinson! This is a day I always look forward to attending at Dodger Stadium. I am proudly wearing my Jackie Robinson jersey at work and aftewards I will head out to Dodger Stadium to honor Jackie!

Thank you Jackie! Your breakthrough had an effect not just on baseball but you paved the way for a change in American society.

At the bottom of my work emails, you always get:
“A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives. -Jackie Robinson”

Today in honor of Jackie Robinson, make your life important by having a positive impact on the life of someone else.

I would like to see Tax Day moved from April 15th to the following day so that we can only associate April 15th with Jackie Robinson.

I am running a report on new hires at work. How appropriate that I am getting 42 new hires! Happy #42 Jackie Robinson Day!

Emma: I think it’s nice that all the players in baseball wear his #42. He really opened the doors for so much in American history. God bless him!

Virginia,
How the heck are you? I have not had a chance to post in my blog since Jackie Robinson Day. I bet the celebration at Yankee Stadium was great.
