The Power to Stand
Your life can change in an instant. Mine changed forever on October 16, 2010. After an accident on the football field, I lost all feeling from my neck down. I was told I would never be able to move again. I had two choices. Was I going to spend the rest of my life feeling sorry for myself? Or was I going to make a stand? I know one thing. When they tell you that you have a 3% chance of moving anything below your neck again, forget the 97. Focus on the 3. Yes, my life changed forever; but through my experience, I realized that how my life would change was up to me.
