Marshawn Lynch handing out turkeys makes the world a better place
By Lee Vowell
Whenever in doubt that humanity has lost its way, just look to Marshawn Lynch.
Marshawn Lynch has always done things to the beat of a different drummer and the world is a better place for it. Who can think of Skittles without thinking of Beast Mode? Beast Quake? Well, that is one of the greatest moments in NFL history. But you know what is more important than those things? Reality. And when it comes to that, Marshawn Lynch is a superstar.
Lynch may be the guy behind, “I’m just here so I don’t get fined.” But that is what the NFL required from him. Lynch is more into what life needs and what Lynch has the ability to give. Former Seahawks running back Lynch founded Fam 1st Family Foundation in Oakland whose mission is to “Empowerment and education, aiming to build self-esteem and academic learning skills in underprivileged youth.”
Lynch doesn’t broadcast his charitable doings; He does them because he knows it is the right thing to do.
Marshawn Lynch is great at life
Lynch never cared about what the NFL needed from him because he cares more about what he can do to help people in real life. And so this week it was not surprising to Marshawn Lynch handing out free turkeys to families in need in Hawaii. In partnership with his foundation and a bunch of other charitable givers, Lynch went to Aloha Stadium and gave food to people who needed food.
So while there are people in life who may have laughed at and dismissed Lynch’s interviews before games, the ultimate laugh is on people who may care less about humanity as a whole than Lynch does. He does charitable work because he wants to and not because he has to.
And honestly, isn’t that what all humans should be doing? We are in this world together and helping one another is a great thing. And Marshawn Lynch is a human being we can be thankful for.
