I think again, I would consider myself an odd one in that I have more friends, and supporters, and family ties were certainly strengthened.  I think things like this always pull families together, teach them the value.  Nobody plans for something like this to happen.  And, I also think with friends—I have more friends and met people that I probably never would’ve met even if I wasn’t injured.  Again, I think I set the tone for that when I show people that I can live a successful life.  I’m the same guy, I just do what I do sitting down, and I’m still a fun guy to hang out with.
