What if there was no hope?
“When you were born GOD already put Hope in you. Hope is such a part of you that it will sit when you sit, and move when you move. Hope helps guide you. Hope always looks back to see where it’s been. So it won’t make the same mistake again, it’s always looking to do the right thing. No matter what life throws at you, there is always Hope. -J.R. Richard
What if we had no dreams?
If I did not have my dreams, I would not have gone from Mesquite, Texas to Paris, France at age 16 to become a fashion model. Dreams are our future, and if we are lucky, clever and work hard anything can happen. But without dreams, there is no place to begin. -Jerry Hall
Dear Fellow Houstonians,
America was built on simple ideas; belief in a higher purpose, diligent preparation and unrelenting execution. It is often in the briefest of moments that great movements in societal change begin.
Throughout my professional baseball career there were many moments when my basic skills, honed through countless hours, years of preparation and a belief in my abilities — came down to the delivery of one pitch.
Those moments often determined the outcome of a game, season,
Elena Davis, founder of I Am Waters, had one of those moments when she recognized in a brief encounter with one of our community’s homeless that two of life’s most basic ingredients, water and spiritual nourishment, were not available. It was from this I Am Waters was born and has grown over the past three years.
My wife, Debbie, and I have always supported our local communities through the good works of The Roger Clemens Foundation. We are honored to be a part of helping this great organization continue its efforts of uplifting the lives of the homeless one city and one state at a time; Texas, Louisiana, New York and continuing across America.
TOUGH ALL DAY,
I Am Waters Foundation.
“There are no accidents or mistakes; in the end, everything, everyone and every experience we encounter is an opening — an invitation of sorts that will lead us home. We’ve all been hit with hard times — days, months or even years when things became dark and difficult. The wreckage can create the appearance of an ending that we are not equipped to deal with — leaving us temporarily broken. It’s deep within life’s challenges that we forget there is a center point to connect with, that will guide, nourish and protect us.
For those who have survived hard times and come through it stronger and wiser, we carry a healing wisdom that can be shared with our fellow American — those who are displaced and disenfranchised. Something as simple and fundamental as a bottle of water with a word of inspiration and a reminder to never give up—trusting that our best days lie ahead.
– Elena Davis
