Today’s News on Brain Injuries Struck Me Hard

Brain injuries are scary for a lot of reasons, but this week especially.  Like you, I lost control of my emotions after I read a news article today about a newborn hit in the head by a softball.

Yesterday, I read about a soccer icon in his seventies who suffered a brain hemorrhage.  A week before that, I read bout a professional baseball player in his thirties who suffered a brain injury so severe, he was called a walking miracle.

As I reflect on these events, all I can think about is the impact a brain issue might have on my family too.

Even though it is my job to help people plan for the unexpected, these stories still hit home.  Whether these were random events or purposely presented by a higher power, it is a reminder how vulnerable we really are.
