I wheel by this park every day and see the same boys playing soccer. It makes me wish to be young again – young enough to get out in the middle of the park and run and kick a ball.
I use to play soccer when I was younger. I wasn't the star athlete on the team but I was pretty darn close. Well, kind of.
But that was years ago – before my accident. Before the young man ran his car right into my door because he was texting on his phone. Before they had to amputate my legs.
