    I want to give a shout out to the Key 5 and PGC leadership teams.  I just read the email sent out by PGC and have been following all the coaches on Twitter.  I think it is great to see them use their platform to teach understanding.  I truly believe PGC, Key 5 and all basketball coaches have a huge chance to help the youth of America, and the world, better understand the mistakes made in the past.  I am not posting this for any political reason, I just think what they are doing is great and see the opportunity all basketball coaches have to make a difference.  I am posting my reply to them just because the email sparked something in me to write them back.  I hope everyone is safe, well and reaching out to their loved ones during these uncertain days.

    PGC Leadership,

    Beautifully said and thank you for putting something out.  Between this and the info/thoughts that the PGC leadership has expressed on twitter you are showing why you are a top notch organization with a different agenda than just making money.  The PGC camp had a big effect on me in 1995 when I attended the camp with Dick.   That is why I sought you out, online, when my daughter started playing basketball.  Your camps touch so many kids, at an impressionable age, and you can really be a game changer in this fight for understanding and equality.  As a white man I will never fully understand the atrocities that have been done to people of color.  I will try though and try to show my children what is wrong in this world.  Thank you again for putting this info out there and keep up the good work.  I really believe your organization, through basketball, will show the nations youth what true north really is.

    Thanks,

    Chris Guandalini

    Great job by TJ and Adam on the Hardwood Hustle pod with Micah Hayes on social justice.  Definitely listen and learn.
