The Lesson From No. 756

If you watched, it happened last night with a steak of white into the night. For a moment everything stopped as the enormity of the moment sank in. Hank Aaron's 33 year old home run record was history. One era was over. Another had begun.

Whatever you want to say about the now number 1 career home run hitter, Barry Bonds, there is a lesson in all of this. Through out it all Bonds has focused on the future, knowing he could not undo the past, nor could he control what others would think of him no matter how hard he tried.

So he chose to control what to some extent he could: the path of the baseball in the air. By focusing on the present, Bonds, however controversial, has made his mark. He is the home run leader. He has hit 756 home runs; more than any one else.
