He said in part, “What happened to me on ‘Monday Night Football’ I feel is a direct example of God using me as a vessel to share my passion and my love directly from my heart with the entire world and I’m able to give it back to kids and communities all across the world who need it the most, and that’s always been my dream.”
“That’s always been what I stood for and what I will continue to stand for.”
It was a scary moment for the entire country. The injury to the Bills star transcended team or even sport as millions of Americans prayed for the safety of the player.
There are not many public displays of faith in our country anymore. Having a high-profile star who just went through a difficult time declare his recovery to the Lord is a sight to behold. Damar Hamlin has handled this delicate situation very well.
If there is anything good that can come out of such a tragedy, it is hopefully a reminder of the power of faith. There is still great power in prayer, and recent events just proved it.
The Jan. 2 injury was a fearful one for Hamlin and his entire team. Upon waking up, Hamlin famously asked if the team won. Although the Bills are knocked out of the race for the Super Bowl, the example of Damar Hamlin will be one that transcends any trophy. It’s also an enduring symbol of how faith can change the course of a person’s life.
