Love Tim Green

Filed under: Uncategorized — karaswanson @ 11:12 am

Did any of you see the 60 Minutes segment on Tim Green?  What an incredible man!  What an incredible life!!!

This story had a slant towards repeated concussion and how that may play a role in those who eventually are diagnosed with ALS and similar neurological conditions.

But what I took from it is this man as such a warm, adorable, wonderful example of a multi-faceted, broadly-successful life in so many areas.  He went from a football all-pro to now an author of more than 30 books and, as his disease progresses, he invites and utilizes new technologies to allow him to continue to write.

He is an inspiration.

Even with such a debilitating condition, he has continued to participate in his loving family and he has continued to participate in his love of football, coaching youngsters in any capacity that he can.

He finds a way.  He continues to participate.  He goes out and enjoys his life each day.

I hope you will find him as warm, lovely and inspiring as I did.  Love this guy.
