quote:

“Every day is an adventure of discovery,” said Steve through email. “I suppose that's not a drastic change, but the light that Rivers shines in our life blinds me to the point where I don’t feel like I have ALS. Or, maybe it’s that I do not care that I have ALS. Either way, it’s a beautiful light.”



This man truly knows what living is..

I'm annoyed about LSU losing tonight, then I read this. Huge dose of perspective there.

i feel so sorry for the guy and think this is horrible what is happening to him but what is with this?


quote:

Steve and Michel are discussing having a second child. It would require more full-time support from others but they would love for Rivers to have a sibling.


why have another child in this situation?

quote:

“If I die while he is young, which is not my plan, lots of people will tell Rivers, 'Oh, your dad was such a hero.' Hero this, hero that,” said Steve. “Part of what I wanted to do with our video library is share my inadequacies and struggles. Also, I want to share my mind and heart with him so, hopefully, he can know me as well, or better, than any other son knows his father.”


Jesus, intense stuff there, wanting his son to know the real him, even if only for his faults.

Very sad. I hope Steve can pull a Steven Hawking and survive with this disease well past his prognosis.

He really is an inspiration for Saints fans and anyone else in this country with a soul. Reading this article infuriates me even more about the classless actions of the radio hosts in ATL
