I’m still shook over what happened on Monday night…

Don’t Take it for Granted {Daily Dash: January 4, 2023}


  • Buffalo Bills Safety Damar Hamlin taken off field in ambulance during 1st quarter of MNF game vs. Bengals
  • Martina Navratilova diagnosed with two forms of cancer
  • No majority reached in Speaker of the House vote
  • National Trivia Day & National Spaghetti Day


If you watched Monday Night Football this past week, you saw Damar Hamlin suffer a cardiac arrest after a seeming “normal” tackle. CPR was administered on the field for 9 minutes and he was eventually taken to the nearby UC hospital.

Aaron Rodgers, QB for the Packers, made an interesting comment which went something like this:

“We’re modern-day gladiators. We’re paid to play a game we love to entertain people, but at the end of the day, it’s just a game.”

I LOVE FOOTBALL. I get a bit of ‘seasonal depression’ when the NFL season ends. That being said, no sport or game is worth dying for. I don’t know what will come as a result of this injury, but I know we need to pray things change and most importantly, pray for a complete recovery for Damar.

Speaking of prayer. Please stop and pray right now. I was watching NFL Live on ESPN last night and one of the sportscasters actually prayed on air instead of just “sending thoughts and prayers”. It was powerful and I wish more of us would follow suit.

You can watch a clip of it here on Twitter.

So whatever your “it” is, don’t take it for granted today.

What happened during Monday Night Football last night was just one more reminder not to take any moment for granted and to tell those you love how you feel about them.

Stay in the know on the go:
