We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
I read about a football star who's life was changed. He was tackled and his spine was broken and he wasn't able to move anything under his shoulders after that. He almost died twice in two days. After he recovered he suffered from depression and in an attempt to cheer him up his dad took him to a high school football game where they witnessed a guy who had broken his spinal cord, just like him. In months a nonprofit organization was born that helps athletes who are injured. I think this is a good idea because there are lots of athlets that get injured and don't worry about it because they believe they are fine until something bad happens. With this organization it can help lots more athletes.
