The Jefferson Award for public service has the same clout as The Noble peace prize. Recently they made a division specifically for athletes. The process started with 32 of us then was reduced to 10 and finally Nnamdi Asomugha and Tyrus Thomas were named the winners Tuesday June 22nd in Washington DC. I made the top 10 and though I didn’t win I feel like I did. I won the opportunity attend the ceremony and to meet so many amazing people. I don't have my own foundation, the funds to get it going or the name that draw the kind of attention to draw the funds to keep it going but there are already enough efforts in existence to find something you are passionate about and attach your self to it so you can aid in its growth and outreach. Attending these sort of events serves as a great reminder that no matter how much you think your doing you can always challenge yourself to do more. It also lets you know that your not alone. There are so many doing so much good in this world and it is so uplifting to see such big hearts in action. There various media outlets would have you believe that there isn't anything positive going on but a room full of people investing in other people in order to impact this world certainly does change that perspective.
