A Message from Mr. Gilmore

As a baseball fan, I have long been amazed at the vision of Ted Williams, whose 20-10 eyesight helped enable him to become the last man in history to bat .400 and to later hit an astounding .388 at the age of 39. This same vision also contributed to Williams' reputation as an outstanding fighter pilot, both in World War II and in Korea.

I admire Williams' vision because my own is not so sharp, having worn glasses since I was 28 and using bifocals for the past few years.

However, vision is not solely about visual acuity.
Vision is the ability to imagine, to see something not as it is but as how we hope it will become.

Noah built an ark in preparation for the flood, even though it had never rained before. Now that's vision!
Mother Teresa experienced a "call within a call" and, starting with little in a destitute India, built a hospice; centers for the blind, disabled, and aged; and a leper colony. Her vision brought life and light to thousands.

Perhaps each of us had a vision for our marriage, our children, and our career. Sometimes, circumstances and setbacks may obscure our vision and cloud our dreams. And yet, just because things don't turn out exactly how we envisioned, may we never fail to imagine and to hope.

This fall, may each of us recast our vision and may we dream big dreams for our children and for ourselves. Our eyesight may not be 20-10, but faith and optimism can help craft a future that is crystal clear, filled with promise, influence, and life-impacting action!
