Because he was unable to run, again it put him into a deep depression that was only cured after he became a Christian. A while after he became a Christian he was able run again and would eventually go to Japan to carry the Olympic torch. He did more than just run though; he did skateboarding, rock climbing and other adventurous things. He also created camp to help with troubled boys, because he felt like he needed to keep boys from going down the wrong path. He felt that way because if he hadn’t straightened out he wouldn’t have been able to have all those great life experiences.

My passion for track and field began with a Nike advertisement. At age ten, I opened the newspaper to a two-page spread of the hometown distance running legend Steve Prefontaine overlaid by a paragraph of inspirational copy. It concluded asking, “Where is the Next Pre?” The story of his small town Oregon roots, gutsy racing style, and ambition to be the best resonated with me like nothing ever had before. I told myself I was the next Pre, and then tore off for my first run through the streets of Eugene, Oregon – “Tracktown USA”.
The whole concept of Nick Sousanis 's comic "Unflattening" pertains to how one can see different things and read the social world. While the social world of mankind is shaped based on the choices our ancestors made, do social patterns and behaviors really have to be a certain way?

To begin, some may argue that he handled his situation with the media poorly. An idol for his people and young people to admire should be able to handle media situations gracefully and in a more professional fashion, as opposed to complaining of ailments and becoming enraged as he so often did. Doing so does not set a good example for one who is regarded as a hero and model. For example, his self-possession was taken by many as conceit, a characteristic which many find undesirable. He once said, “For me, I am the best ballplayer in the world,” (Beschloss).
His long, hard road to success was the type of encouragement people need to help with the fight against cancer.

According to 48 Liberal Lies about American History, Larry Schweikart argues that the founding fathers of the United States truly did want religion to be incorporated into government. James Madison, one of America 's founding fathers, first considered the relationship between religion and government when he saw a group of Baptists in a local jail.

Madison eventually paired with Thomas Jefferson, and together their support for religious freedom changed legislation.
