Yadid’s Speech for Yishama’s Bar Mitzvah

Yadid’s Speech to his brother on the occasion of Yishama becoming a Bar Mitzvah:

Hi everyone, thanks for joining my family in the celebration of my brother’s Bar Mitzvah. Many, if not most of the people in this room are aware that my brother is a baller, but he wasn’t always that way. In fact, he used to be trash at ball. But, as time progressed, he realized that basketball was his passion. This realization hit him over the Winter, so he was unable to work on his shooting outside. Though he hit this roadblock, he wouldn’t let it get in his way. So every day for around half a year he took take a basketball to the basement and practiced and expanded his dribbling skills. After this phase he proceeded to go to Highlands, the public basketball courts near our house in order to play basketball with other people, working on his skills. He still goes to those court to this day, from when he gets home to sundown in order to get better.

The great sage of Ancient China, Master Shifu once said  “If you only do what you can do, you’ll never be more than you are.” This seemed to be the concept my brother was following. Shama, I know that as the older brother I’m supposed to set an example for you, but for me the tables are turned. I strive to have the same persistence and passion that you have, to be as dedicated as you have been. Because of your passion, our squad now goes to play basketball almost every week, abba fixed his shoulder up and exercises almost every day now,  you put your mind to something, and it changed everyone around you.

I am so proud of my children.
