THOUGHT OF THE DAYHow many times have you sat in the bleachers and booed a football player who fumbled the ball.  Or maybe you were a good sport and kept your mouth shut but said to yourself, “What an Idiot!”

Theodore Roosevelt, our 26th president, was known as a person of action. He said: It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.

Today, remember this: If you are active and doing your best – whether it’s with your studies or sports or other activities – you deserve a great deal of credit for fully participating in the game of life. When you stumble don’t let sideline critics discourage your efforts. Instead, give yourself a pat on the back for being in the game in not on the sideline.
