The Pistol: Have Faith. Nothing is Impossible

He is short, but he dreamed to be a pro basket player. Could it be possible?

Pete Maravich was not a popular kid at his school. He always wanted to join the team, but no one cared to him. However, this situation can’t make him down. He didn’t let anyone and anything let him down.

His father, was the one who transferred abundant support to him. When people say bad words about Pete, his father will come and say the truth. Saying that Pete is the talented kid. He can reach his dreams, whatever the world is doubted about.

“It’s tough being a kid, chasing a grown-up dream. Through the pain and tears and confusion, I knew I had to keep pursuing my dreamβ€”for Pop and for me, whether or not anyone else ever understood what was happening inside. And the emotion and pressure would overcome me, I lost myself in drills Pop had taught me.”

He knew that reaching dreams will need sacrifice; will need a willingness to be mocked by people, to be said crazy. But he kept stand on his ground. He had faith.

The pictures above are from an inspirational movie titled The Pistol, which was released in 1991. This film is dedicated to the memory of “Pistol” Pete Maravich (June 22, 1947 – January 5, 1988). Press Maravich (Pete’s dad) play an important role in Pete’s life. Press Maravich gave an legacy to his son and to children everywhere that:

“Love never fails, character never quits, and with patience and persistence, dreams do come true.”

Pete was mocked as “hot dog” by some of his school mates. It also can’t extinguish his spirit.

“I must admit I never really understood why people wanted autographs in the first place; I guess people looked to me as a hero. Webster defines a hero as a man noted for his special achievements. Hero is also defined as a long sandwhich. Since a lot of people called me a hot dog during my career, either definition may have been the reason people wanted my autograph.”
