When I think about Keep On Playing I think about my high school gym teacher. I had major back surgery about halfway through my 7th grade year, and throughout all of 8th grade I was completely on the sidelines during gym class, the teacher really made no effort to include me at all. When I got to high school, the experience couldn’t have been more different. From day one my teacher made sure I was a part of everything, whether it was operating the clock during basketball games, or having one of the students who was on the football team teaching me how to throw a spiral, his efforts really gave me the opportunity to keep on playing when I otherwise absolutely would not have had that chance.
