make an impact

Have you ever heard the OJ story? Not that OJ! Fortunately, this OJ story does not involve gloves, Broncos, or rhyming  lawyers.


OJ Brigance is truly an inspiring man. OJ is a former professional football player who played for the Baltimore Ravens. In 2007, he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and in the matter of five years, his life has drastically changed. It’s people like OJ that really challenge me on my perspective of life. Am I living everyday to the fullest? Am I making an impact? Am I being all that I can be? Am I using every inch of my talent? Am I living a story worth telling?

Although OJ is no longer able to verbally communicate without the assistance of a computer, in my opinion he is living a story worth telling.
