The Steve Gleason Foundation and Wounded Warrior Amputees Flag Football Game

The Steve Gleason Foundation and The Wounded Warrior Amputees teamed up a couple days before the Superbowl to play a flag football game.  Being familiar with the Steve Gleason story and his foundation, I volunteered to shoot this event when I heard about it.  I'm not one to get overly emotional at events, but there was such an amazing atmosphere at this.  Groups of people who have encountered extremely difficult circumstances, fighting to make their lives and the lives of others better.  Seeing the lineup of NFL players show up to support the cause;  seeing the soldier amputees answering questions of crowds of high school kids; and hearing Steve Gleason address the crowd (thanks to some impressive technology); you can't help but be moved. This was one of those events that sticks with you for a while, leaves you wanting to use your time better, do more with what you have, and stop complaining about all the trivial little inconveniences in your life.

Thanks guys~
