Mission 2: Training, Dublin, & Clonmel is now completed. After a week of great training, we all went to Dublin to do some camps at “Kubs Club”. As coaches we did some basketball sessions, and had an Q&A session. Also, while in Dublin, I also got to see a semi-final hurling game, which was a first for me. It was “Brilliant,” I tell you. So “Brilliant” that we got to go back to the club and play some hurling or I would say tried my hand at hurling.
We all finishing up our last days together in Clonmel. In Clonmel, we went to the Coolmore 2013 Horse Race, I bet on Horse 11 Art Scene, and won 9 times on what I spent on the ticket. There we also did camp sessions at the Titans Club, but this time at the close of the sessions, a little girl cried because we was leaving, and at that moment, I knew exactly why I am here. The saying is “It takes a village to raise a child”, but I have now learned, “It takes sports to change a life.” I am going to miss everybody as we go to our universities and continue the work of a Victory Scholar.
As I go on my next mission of getting to know Belfast, I want to leave you with a song that has grown on me since being in Ireland… By the way I love to sing, but can’t find the right tune at times lol Aviccii Wake Me Up, “They tell me I’m too young to understand, They say I’m caught up in a dream, Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes, Well that’s fine by me… So wake me up when it’s all over, when I’m wiser and I’m older, all this time I was finding myself, and I didn’t know I was lost…
