Darius Butler 's Situation Should put things in perspective for all.

I was reading through some news and saw this very interesting and touching article on Darius Butler. I think everyone should take the time to read it and gain a new perspective on the players we love to watch. These guys are more than just athletes. These men are husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers. I know we all, including me, have questioned players toughness and reasons for not on par play. It makes you understand these guys have serious problems off the field, just like we do. Similar to the health scare Steve Smith had with his wife. My heart goes out to Butler and Smith, quite frankly any person who goes through situations like this. Whether we understand it all the time there is more to life than football and we would do well to understand that. Here I will try to link the story for everyone to read.

I think we should all sending our best and prayers if that's your beliefs out to Butler, his family, and especially his daughter, Milan, in this situation. Anyone with children will surely understand this. I don't but have nephews that are like sons to me.
