RB James Conner

In a historical period of humanity where communication & interaction has been severely warned to be at a distance, the world seems as if it’s ending. Metaphorically perhaps, but for example, the “City That Never Sleeps” is sleeping & the streets of Times Square in Manhattan, New York areas empty as your typical suburbia, old-town.

The last thing people can hold onto in the wake of their fears is hope for it to end whether it be in two weeks, two months, or the end of the year. For someone who didn’t anticipate a catastrophe to enter his life & then not know the comeback of it all, RB James Conner understands it nearly better than all of us.

Of course, there are distinct differences. All we have to do as communities is isolate ourselves in our homes and periodically wash our hands as compared to the extreme pain-bearing process Conner had to endure. However, to be around a walking image of perseverance could surely motivate us all.

A love for Pittsburgh as well, no matter how his health history might factor into his future with the team, he has embraced the culture and city and represented the grit it takes to be a Steeler.
