Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter Passes Away at Age 96
When I got married and moved to a Ranch north of Tucson, Arizona, I was still a broadcaster for an ABC TV affiliate Magazine show, but the rest of my life completely changed. I remember when the late First Lady Rosalynn Carter arrived at our Kai Ranch and greeted our family. She was beautiful and very kind. She wrote me a handwritten note wishing me good wishes in happiness and health. I wish I could thank her for her kindness again. Thank you First Lady Rosalynn Carter.

Jeremy Lin continues to recover from his left knee surgery but
due to pain felt in his knee after his first one-to-one practice
drill, he's not likely to return before Game 4 at the earliest. 

On Saturday, the New York Knicks point guard participated
in his first one-to-one drills since he had surgery April 2 to repair
a meniscus tear in his left knee.  

Doctors have estimated that it would take six weeks
from the date of his surgery before his knee is recovered
enough to play basketball. His rehab has been encouraging
also he has reported soreness in his knee yesterday
after his one-to-one practise.  

Last week he tweeted when he started jogging:

"Great team win in ATL. And i jogged slowly (but not as slow as
Steve Novak (@stevenovak20) for the first time since surgery..its
been a great day so far! - Jeremy Lin (@JLin7) April 22, 2012"

Meanwhile, Jeremy's star is not fading off the court,
he was just named to the #1 spot on Time Magazine's annual list
of The 100 Most Influential People in the World.  
Time's list is on the newstands now, its the April 30, 2012 edition.

You will want to pick up a copy of Time Magazine's The 100 Most 
Influential People in the World issue just to see the magnificent photo 

of Jeremy airborne with a basketball in the palm of his right hand,
his left arm deftly blocking his opponent as he prepares to score 
another point for his team.

Also, there's a short companion essay "The dreamers' Most Valuable Player"
written by Arne Duncan, the U.S. Secretary of Education saying much of
what all of us have been marveling about over Jeremy Lin.

In a world dominated by individuals flounting 'success' through bling and
glamour, its the individual and not the team that gets the attention, 
Jeremy Lin has stayed humble, kept his integrity, continues to work
hard, and thanks his team every step of the way. 

Our hats off to Jeremy who has given hope to millions of people who
have a dream. If you work very hard and stay focused,
you too, could overcome the odds and be given an opportunity of a lifetime.
