LETTERS TO OUR SONS

KEVIN DURANT VIDEO THANKING HIS MOM – CLICK LICK TO WATCH

All I could think about during Kevin Durant acceptance speech for MVP was how he demonstrated what it looks like to be a great MVP because of the help of others. He was so emotional during that speech, as was his mother, and it was an absolutely fitting way for Durant to receive the biggest honor of his basketball career. He spoke about the sacrifices his mom made to ensure he and his brothers had enough to eat every night, how she worked hard to keep them safe and on the right track toward success.  These are the actions that create strong secure and confident men.  Even in the hard times she encouraged and motivated them.  In her lack she wanted the best for her sons.

The speech will be forever remembered because he lifted up others and honored the sacrifice that his mother made. Because of the many sacrifices of others he has become the Man that he is.   He will continue to grow not just as a basketball player but as a man. I was also impressed with one of the first things Durant said in the speech. “Basketball is just a platform for me to send the right message as a role model”. Mothers are a big part of all of our lives, and it’s important to make sure they know that. A mother role will determine how well their sons do as husbands, fathers, leaders and friends.

In honor of Father’s Day we salute all of the Fathers that are standing strong in their role.

The difference between a boy and a man is not how they made the mistake but how they rebound from it.

What truly defines a father is not what he takes in but what he gives out.
