"I have a girlfriend. Her name is Ashley"
"Football exhibition today with wounded warriors and fellow members of the US National Amputee Soccer Team. Audience of 800, including Ashley."
"I scored a goal that put us in the lead and eventually brought us the win. Back when I lost my leg, I thought I had lost soccer, too. But sometimes things don’t turn out how you thought they would. Sometimes they turn out better."
"My tenth birthday party, which doctors thought might be my last. Maybe that’s why I look so serious. Like I was gazing into those candles contemplating my mortality or something. If anyone has access to a time machine, please go back and tell that boy that he survives, his hair grows back, and today he is celebrating another (much happier) birthday with his girlfriend Ashley."
"I met Tony Pearson when I was three. We were neighbors and instant BFFs. Even when I had cancer, he came over almost daily to play. Today, I am a groomsman in his wedding."
"My solemate Stephen and I exchanged single shoes today! He’s missing his right leg. I’m missing my left. Boom."
