Hope in Michigan: Retired NFL player Courtney Hawkins returns to Flint Beecher
October 26, 2008
As many get ready to go to church this morning on a gray Sunday in Michigan, the Detroit Free Press tells the story of Courtney Hawkins, former NFL and Michigan State University player who returned to Flint Beecher, one of the poorest parts of our struggling state.
This story should be a must read because it shows the difference one person can make.
Hawkins presents a template for others to follow, especially men with kids who are starving for the attention of their fathers.
Read it and you will feel the hope. This guy is a gift to a lot of people who need it.
