You’re not gonna like what you are going to read and I know that already but it’s the truth. Kevin Ware of Louisville suffered a horrific broken leg in yesterdays college basketball game. His lower leg broke in half and the bone actually pierced the skin. People across the country have actually tweeted their monetary support to a man that they don’t even know. Seriously? Let’s be honest. The guy didn’t die…. he broke his freaking leg. He doesn’t have a life threatening disease and he didn’t lose a loved one. He broke his leg.
When you walk on a sporting field of any kind under you own free will you understand that you are taking a risk of physical injury. Don’t get me wrong I wish he didn’t break his leg BUT he knew was putting himself at risk. His teammates and his coach were visibly upset and some were even crying. Would they have reacted the same way had they not SEEN the injury? If Kevin Ware fell down the stairs at his dorm and suffered the same injury would they break down in tears upon hearing the news? I think not. They walked away in tears because they had witnessed a HORRIFIC injury and that’s actually kind of selfish.
As far as these clowns that want to send money to help out a guy they don’t even know here’s a suggestion for ya: Look around you. There are many local organizations that can use your help in fighting abuse of animals, domestic violence, hunger, poverty or your favorite cause. Visit a relative you have not seen lately or take the time to reestablish a connection with a lost friend. If any of these things would happen then I think Kevin Ware would appreciate that more than anything else. Kevin Ware broke his leg. He wasn’t killed by a drunk driver. Let’s keep this in perspective.
