Commenting on the devastating violence that took place on Monday in Baltimore, outspoken Christian professional football player Benjamin Watson explained that the pain, anger and tension that the city and its residents are experiencing can only be healed through the power of Christ.
The 34-year-old 11-season NFL tight end, who plays for the New Orleans Saints, is a frequent commentator on current events and has never been afraid to let his Christian convictions be heard. On Tuesday, Watson took to Facebook to voice his thoughts on the rioting, looting, injuring of cops, destroying of police cars, and homes and businesses that took place in Baltimore after the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who suffered a spinal injury while in Baltimore police custody.
Watson noted that Baltimore is not the first city to go through a violent uprising over police negligence, and likely won't be the last. He further asserted that the problems Baltimore faces right now are shared by the nation as a whole. more >>
Even though this young boy is disabled, he never fails to live life to the fullest. Braylon O'Neill is a resident of Cranston, Rhode Island and in most ways, he's just like any other 6-year-old around the country. He has no bones in his lower legs, and still manages to get around thanks to a brilliant technology advancement.
His friends call him "Bray," and he does many thing with them. Braylon loves to swim, run, play golf, learn the drums and a whole lot more. Unfortunately, Braylon was born with a birth defect. He had no bones in his lower legs and has to use prosthetic legs to do all these things. Microsoft found him, after seeing a video someone posted of him playing at an event. They contacted the family and used his story in an ad for the Super Bowl in 2015. A commercial like this will touch anyone's heart, that loves to play sports. Braylon is a hero for many people, and an inspiration for all.
