Keep On Pushing

Get well soon

So often in life we do things without giving a second thought as to how fortunate we are. When you think about it, even the most mundane tasks can be seen as a blessing from the right perspective. There is so much we take for granted, and we only appreciate it till its gone.

Yesterday morning Eduardo Da Silva was just another athlete, who was about to play a league game just like any other. He was in his first season at Arsenal, won of the best clubs in the world, and after starting the season slowly he was finally starting to cemement his place in the First XI. Three minutes into the game, He was the victim of a horrific tackle by Martin Taylor. The tackle which was a immediate red card offense broke Eduardo's leg in 3 places.

I am no Arsenal fan, by any stretch of the imagination. But after seeing the aftermath of the tackle I was almost reduced to tears. I have seen my fair of injuries over the years in sports. But I have never seen anything as horrific as this, It was so bad Sky Sports wasnt even allowed to show the replay.

It isnt the severity of the injury that bothers me so much, but the fact that He may never be able to play soccer again. I was torn on whether I wanted to post links to the video or the pics of the incident, But I just couldnt bring myself to do it.

I would encourage all of you to keep Eduardo in your thoughts and prayer this week, that he may be able to one day play again. Cause no one deserves to be hurt like that. and We must all take a chance to reflect on what we love in life and thank God we are able to do it.
