Intro: YHC loves history and baseball, and today in history, the one and only Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth’s 39-yr-old Career Home Run Record. Hank crushed #715 right here in ATL at the old Fulton County Stadium on April 8, 1974. If you ask me, he is still the reigning HR champ, finishing his career two seasons later with a mighty 755 dingers and no performance-enhancing drugs. Career batting average of .305, more than 2000 RBI’s, more than 3000 hits. Immortal in the world of baseball. And at 86 years old today, this High Impact Man is a Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree who sits on the board of nonprofits and stands for what is good and right.

We are going to step up and use the connections God has blessed us with to help Cleaver and his M feeling welcome in Peachtree City. ‘Rona can kiss my grits – we’re gonna get them connected.
We thanked the Lord for the things we take for granted. We remembered the Lord’s promises, not the least of which is to cleanse us of all unrighteousness through Christ when we ask for His forgiveness. We asked for mercy, because we are unworthy. We asked for grace, because we are weak and seek to be strong in more ways than one.
Naked Man Moleskin:
So there’s a worldwide crisis going on. That is not going to stop High Impact Men from making high impacts on the men, women, and children in their homes, their neighborhoods and communities, and those they can still reach by the gift of technology. Let’s keep getting stronger in our physical fitness, our fellowship, and our faith, no matter what comes. I hope to see you boys in the gloom again soon, even over the magical airwaves of the internet.
Special thanks to LawDog and Gut Check for getting this thing together, to Zoom for being free and awesome, and to every man who “posted” by clicking the meeting link this morning. You all made my day better. Now let’s go make the day better for all those in our circle of influence. GO!
