On a very serious note…

As I’m sure you all know, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, Jovan Belcher has passed away early this morning.  He killed himself after allegedly killing his girlfriend.  This should not be the definition of this man though.

My sister went to High School with him, they were friends, and there was never a bad word spoken about him.  It’s a terribly shocking tragedy.  He returned to West Babylon High School several times after making it to the NFL, giving inspirational speeches in the locker room to my friends on the football team.  I know how much it meant to them, and how much they idolized him, always looking at his framed jersey next to the team room.  It’s truly such a shame.  

It goes to show you that everyone is facing a battle of some sort.  Never look down on anyone, unless you’re helping them up.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his family, his girlfriend’s family, and everyone who is dealing with this tragic loss.  Jovan will always be a WB Eagle.
