Another week that saw me not only meeting voters but also took me to Greenville, SC. I learned how the city lost their Braves minor league team over a dispute about funding a new stadium and acquired another minor league team whose organization built the stadium for the city. They also threw in some trolley’s as shuttles as part of the deal . If this sounds familiar, it should.
But the most inspiring event was being at the finish line at the Shepherd Center on Sunday when the Shepherd’s Men–12 veterans–completed their 911 mile run from New York City to support a fund raising campaign for the Shepherd Center. America still makes warriors like they used to–and these heroes proved it.
