Consequently, as a way to take control of his fears he institutes National Suicide Day, a day dedicated to all the negative feelings he has, so that the rest of year can be enjoyed without these negative feelings.

His eyes were so wild, his hair so long…” (Morrison 15).
If American Football is an art, then its athletes paint with blood. This should surprise no one; the gridiron plays host to modernity’s most violent sport. In this unforgiving environment, it is all to common for former stars to flare out with career-ending injuries.

Concussions themselves are a controversial topic simply because of their destructive forces on the lives of everyone, ranging from people who tripped and fell a little too hard, to people who make a career of hitting other people as hard as they possibly can.
