A true Saint

Here’s a link to an incredibly moving story about former Saint Steve Gleason who is suffering from ALS

And here is the final, inspiring quote from the article

 

"And am I afraid now? Yeah, I'm afraid," he said. "I'm afraid to walk in public, because people look at me. But I'm not going to stop. I'm afraid because if I want to commune with my friend Shad (Meier), I have to ask him to cut my chicken for me. But I did it. And I'm afraid to go back and see my teammates and coaches because I know that I'll feel envy. But I'm going to do it anyway. Because fear is just a feeling, and if you can acknowledge that fear, digest that fear and overcome it, the rewards are incredible."

Indeed. That was a great and moving article. I think I've read it 3 times.
