With the tragic news of the death, at his own hands, of Junior Seau along with the peculiarly similar initial circumstances of Dave Duerson everyone needs to step back. Yes, the very first thought that crossed my mind was Dave Duerson upon hearing the reports, mainly by Twitter. However, what we must collectively do now is allow the process to unfold.
Not unlike sustaining a concussion the news is just the beginning. When someone sustains a concussion often there are instant leaps to conclusions about time missed, long-term effects, and safety. With a concussion it is a process, after time is allowed to properly asses the situation, create a plan and implement it there is nothing more to note other than it is a concussion.
And just like concussions people act in different ways, there is no rhyme or reason for many of these tragic situations, often it is because one has not had the proper education and levity of the situation.
I would just like to caution EVERYONE, let the process begin without jumping to conclusions. In due time we will find out all the necessary information. I for one hope against all hope that this has nothing to do with his brain health.
Thank You. #C4CT
