Intersting facts!
I am amazed at the number of people that take it for granted and don't protect it. It is not infallable. Every day you hear about someone suffering a brain injury and yet you see people riding bikes in heavy traffic with no helmets or skateboarding, I could go on and on. I think the big thing is that "brain injury" isn't explained enough. People don't know what can happen to you if you've had a brain injury. They think "concussion", big deal, but it is a big deal and much more can happen than a concussion! I know from family experience that a brain injury can ruin a young persons life. Leave them needing 24/7 supervision, or putting them in a wheelchair with parts of their body paralyzed.... the list goes on!
