    Very awesome story! I still hope the T-Birds win on Friday, but thanks so much for sharing. We need more of this kind of news in our media.

    Brandon: Wow! What an amazing back-story to your life. And thanks to Trevor for the excellent write-up here. Kudos, man!!

    Brandon-- You said you're not a religious man, and that's totally OK, dude. To each, his own! But I believe you realize and appreciate that you DID indeed have some sort of a very-real "spiritual experience" through your accident and recovery.

    So, even though you may not totally understand what happened (in a spiritual sense), or be able to adequately explain some of those things that happened to you, I hope you'll ALWAYS feel free to share that "faith-promoting" experience just the way you openly did it in this article!! You did a perfect job of publicly sharing what happened to you, "spiritually", without getting too "churchy" or "preachy". And a LOT of people who desperately need strength and determination will find it in your personal story!
