Matthew Jeffers, a senior acting major at Towson University in Maryland wrote a letter to the Baltimore Ravens, his favorite NFL team, entitled "A Reason To Win." It was a perspective of his struggles with Skeletal Dysplasia, in relation to the struggles of winning a Super Bowl, with the ultimate lesson that, "Life is not fair, it doesn't care about feeling sorry for yourself or self-pity. The only disability in life is a bad attitude. THE ONLY DISABILITY IN LIFE IS A BAD ATTITUDE. A positive attitude is the most positive combatant to life's misfortunes." Pretty inspiring.
