A powerful message by Matthew. Have been severely distressed since moring afer hearing news about a girl battling for life after gang rape in India.

His msg applies to everyone and for every walks on life. Attitude makes the world of difference.

Thanks for sahring this Kevin!

How could you not be inspired by that? If you weren't, check your pulse.

That was, singlehandedly, the most touching message I have ever read in my lifetime. It makes me look at myself from a whole new perspective. God bless you and your family, Mr. Jeffers. My prayers are with you and your family, as well as all of us that struggle to conquer life.

Everyone's said it all!

I can only add what, in 1960, corner-man Drew Bundini Brown said to Muhammad Ali between rounds of his fight with Sonny Liston:

"Rumble, Jeff, Rumble"!!!

Thank you for sharing that Matthew. You have a true resiliance. That in itself is a blessing from God. Thank you for taking that blessing and inspiring the rest of us. Thank you for also inspiring our Ravens team. They are also an example of true resiliance. God bless you and your family.
