THE JOURNEY BACK HOME
Written by Jared Thomas
Growing up in Indianapolis was all I knew. From the age of 4 when I first picked up a basketball, sports became my canvas for expression with Indianapolis as my studio. How does a kid’s dream fit into the parameters that society has placed on you?
His name is Jesus Christ. He was, is and always will be the conductor of my life. He is who I point to first because He comes before anything or anyone else. It was growing up in the church when I learned that my parents became stewards over my life once I stepped into this world. My stewards are April Thomas and Michael Thomas. These two are examples of black love, positive trailblazers and pillars of sacrifice and transformation.
