If you Google the word “concussion” you get 22.8 million hits.
Watch one video on YouTube of the effect concussions can have on someone’s life and it stops you in your tracks cold.
A random search for videos of the effects of concussions on someone brought me to where an elite high school or college soccer player, named Chelsea, has already had six concussions, most likely related to headers and other contact from game action. As the video shows the effects for her have been long-lasting and wide-ranging, and go from having problems in the classroom to not being able to attend parties due to sensitivity to light and sound.
So you’d think that images of people severely affected by these injuries would change the way those under the brightest lights think about concussions, right?
