Jim Searles from Holding On caught my attention because of the dedication him and his friends gave to checkers. They found something that they loved to do together and made sure they were able to play. It did not matter where they played or how long but just that they were together and able to play. These men loved to play. They rented space just to play and then the building got destroyed. So, they asked the Salvation Army. Here, they did not have to pay, they were able to play the game they loved for free. On page 116 it says, "A man don't quit what he love. Love is a great thing." This shows how it did not matter what happened to them, they were always going to play the game of checkers.
