To Believe Is To See :: Sonny Melendrez

“All that you dream to accomplish and aspire to be is very possible, no matter where you think you are at this point in your life.”

A few years ago, I hosted the opening ceremonies of the International Senior Olympic Games and met a man named Harry whose sport was golf. When I asked him how he got interested in the game, he explained that while his friends had always played, he was happy to ride along in the cart. One day, he picked up a club, hit a few balls and hadn’t stopped since.

Then, I asked how long ago that was.

“Twenty-two years ago.”

I wondered how old he was at the time.


That’s right, Harry was 102 years old and still playing.  His love for the game had started long after others would have never given a thought to starting such a sport. Shooting his age was no big deal.

As someone once said, “Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

Here’s to your vision!
