Don't give up
I am not sure the context of why I wrote this piece back in the 90's, but I do remember the lesson I was writing about: the value of persistence drawn from my determination to ride a unicycle.
The following is a very short article I wrote, probably in my mid-20s. I found it in a file cabinet in a manilla folder of some clips of published opinion-editorials from the mid-1990s that I’ll also share soon.
I don’t remember why I wrote it, but it was clearly to encourage someone—maybe myself—not to give up on anything, and especially on Christianity. I remember wanting to publish an op-ed in my college newspaper, and this may have been my failed attempt at that. It was probably too overtly Christian to get published there.
While the passing of 30 years makes the context of the article a little fuzzy for me, I remember like yesterday the lesson of persistence and the value of dogged determination that I expressed here. I hope you get something from it as well.
