The Trailer For The Steve Gleason Documentary Is Out, And I Better Stock Up On Tissues
Well Steve, I guess we are all pussies, because I refuse to believe there will be a single dry eye that's able to watch the entirety of this documentary...
Seriously though, I was fighting back tears just watching a 2 and half minute preview. Just kept looking at the timer at the bottom of the video to see how much longer I had to restrain myself from breaking out in full blown hysterics. This is obviously a much watch for all people. Especially those that - much like myself - dumped a bucket of ice water over their head and posted it on social media without truly understanding what they were "raising awareness" for. ALS is one of the most frightening diseases out there, and that's what makes Steve Gleason's ability to take it in stride that much more impressive. Obviously this film will give people a closer look into the hardships that he has had to - and continues to - face, but it will also provide insight into the strength of his will and the perseverance of his character. Even in his deteriorating physical state he still has the mental toughness of a champion. He embodies the very definition of the word "inspiration", and everyone can learn a lot from taking a closer at how he has handled the inevitable adversity of his condition.
Just don't forget to bring your tissues.
