The David Wissel Youth Foundation was established to help economically disadvantaged youth. David Wissel was special. David would listen, smile, make you laugh, say something good about you, write letters and even give you an unexpected gift. David loved children and they would flock to him at our Basketball World camps. Basketball World has always helped disadvantaged children attend our camps. We are assisting disadvantaged youngsters attend our camps for only $25. We also provide further assistance to youth in other ways.
THE MEASURE OF A MAN
Not “How did he die?” But “How did he live?”
Not “What did he gain?” But “What did he give?”
Not “What was his station?” But “Had he a heart?”
And “How did he play his God-given part?”
Not “What was his shrine?” Nor “What was his creed?”
But “Had he befriended those really in need?”
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer?
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
These are the things that measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth.
