Fight on...

In our house we don't really watch sports.  It's not that we don't enjoy them, we are just not the TV sports watching type of folks.  But, back in July, I was "introduced" to Stuart Scott, and, I wrote this brief post.  

Sports fan or not, by this point, it's likely that you've heard the name Stuart Scott.

  Sadly, he passed away yesterday at the young age of 49.  But, after hearing his own words, I refuse to say he lost his battle to cancer because if anyone beat cancer, it was him.

"You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live. So live. Live! Fight like hell!"

Stuart was inspiring to say the least, not just in the words he spoke, but in the way he lived his life.  His refusal to let "cancer win" is admirable. 

"When you get too tired to fight, then lay down and rest, and let somebody else fight for you."

It is now our turn to continue his fight.

"You've only got three choices in life:  Give up, Give in, or Give it all you've got."

In the name of Stuart Scott, fight on people, fight on.

And, if you haven't watched that 15 minute video of Stuart's speech from the ESPY awards, what are you waiting for?
