But today, as I ventured over to the Naval Hospital for an eye appointment (yay for free healthcare!), I saw a young soldier in wheelchair with a "wounded warrior" t-shirt. He was missing both of his legs and had other extensive injuries, but was wheeling quickly through the hallway with a big smile on his face as his wife and new baby walked next to him. He cheerfully greeted the doctors in the hallway and obviously had a very positive outlook, despite his circumstances.
And in that instance, I realized that there is way more to life than football. And I am so, so blessed. Thank you God, for that reminder.
