We aren't even going to get into how terrible of person you have to be to sit by a keyboard and mock someone for having one of the most crippling, tragic diseases known to man. We aren't going to discuss how much of an witless coward you have to be to stoop to that level out of anger induced by a football game.
What we need to be discussing is our plan of action. On behalf of Steve Gleason, in the court of law, I would like to argue that those that suffer from ALS should not be forced into serving jail time, even if the charge is murder in the first degree. Steve Gleason just took this morally deprived bastard and killed him, in broad day light, in front of all of his peers. He beat him to the ground, burned him alive, and then shoveled 6 feet of dirt on top of him. My God, say your prayers for the Atlanta Falcons. Their previously undefeated team had their souls taken by a bad Saints team, and their fans are getting the life ripped out of them by people that look helpless on the outside, but are stronger than they could ever imagine on the inside.
What did Steve Gleason do next, you ask? Why, of course he dug him back up, dusted him off, and somehow healed his third degree burns. That's just the type of person that Steve Gleason is. He is the type of person we all, besides this scumbag Ben Tennant, strive to imitate. He is the type of person that is able to forgive and forget, even when the person he's forgiving doesn't deserve to be forgotten. He is the type of person that makes us all better people just by being himself. If ALS absolutely had to exist than it had to be someone like Steve Gleason that got it, because he's one of the only people strong enough to fight it.
The real crime in all of this is that ALS stole our chance of ever sharing a beer with Steve Gleason. Okay fine, that's not the "real" crime, but you know what I mean. It's clear that he, even with the disease that has disabled him, is still the same guy he's always been. I'm just not sure any of us can say that would be the case if we were in that wheelchair. Gleason is funny, strong, and inspiring whether in sickness or in health, and that only becomes more clear when he is faced with people like Ben Tennant. People that should feel blessed that they even share this Earth with a person of Steve Gleason's caliber. I would tell Ben to delete his account, but surprise surprise, he already did. Another internet bully dies at the hands of wit and intelligence.
