Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“A debt of thanks is owed somewhere”)

There can be a lot wrong with this world if you think about it. There are not too many things in this world that are without blame for something. In China recently, a U.S. college basketball team went there for an exhibition game. While they were there, 3 basketball players decided to shoplift and were caught by authorities. Under Chinese rule, those guys “should” have endured 5 to 10 years in prison (and most likely would have been sentenced to such). One of the players was the son of LaVar Ball, formally of the NBA (National Basketball Association) and also the father of this years highly touted rookie ( who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers). To be honest, in this circumstance it should make no difference whether you are a fan of Donald Trump or not. It should make no difference as to what your political affiliation is as well. If Trump talked to the Chinese President and got your son released from jail, you should “thank him.” For some reason, LeVar Ball refuses to thank (or even give any credit) to Trump for getting his son released from Chinese jail. For those of you who don’t follow the story here is the link:

Right is right, and wrong is wrong. I don’t know how Mr. Ball could possibly exempt Trump from gratitude for his son being home. If Trump didn’t get involved his son might still be there in China. No one is telling Ball that he has to support or even give praise to President Donald Trump, but he “at least” deserves a “Thank you.” The rules of another country should always be followed. I have been to other countries where the rules were strictly enforced, and I made sure to obey the laws there. The rules apply to everyone, and that includes those who “visit.” Maybe one day LaVar Ball will change his mind and thank the President. I firmly believe it is “the least” he should do. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
