I often find it amusing when sports stars go out and talk about how important education and reading are. Their success is not due to their higher learning, reading, or studying, it is due to their natural talent and hard work at athletics.

If you want to inspire kids, bring in someone who has used education, not physical ability, to become successful in life.

Kids are more likely to listen to a celebrity or sports star. You evidently woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Do you want positive news or news of people killing people? Gosh, some people....
