I know we have all seen over and over on the news how this ex-NFL player died in Afghanistan. But once I read past that, and learned what an up and coming NFL star he was and the money he turned down. I thought to myself how hard that must have been for him to turn down that money, and go for what was right in his heart. As I am training now, I am looking toward figures that I should strive to be like, and he is without a doubt one of those figures. I bow my head in a moment of silent and wish that he may rest peacefully.

If you've listened to any of his (few) interviews on the subject, you'd see it wasn't hard at all.
