Hanging on the wall of this United States Senator was a photo.
It was a photo of him shooting a jump shot in game seven of the 1971 NBA Eastern conference finals. It in effect ended his teams chances of repeating as NBA Champions that year, as he missed the shot. Most folks don't posted photos on their walls certainly not posted of their failures. When ask about it he said: "It reminds me of my own fallibility."
It probably would be good for all us to be reminded in some manner every so often of something we have failed at doing. No one is infallible.
