To be clear...I wasn't angry on FB...a friend of mine shared it...


I don't know the woman who wrote it. But my friend that shared it, has a daughter and I remember she was into gymnastics since she was very little and I think went on while in high school and possibly college. So my friend knows about what goes on in the back ground of the sport.

When I read the post and the story about the Soviet gymnast that suffered that injury and lived out a short adulthood life, I felt for her and I feel for Simone. And that is why I posed it because to bring some "awareness" to what these kids go through to become #! stars at the age of 24 until they just break, whether bones or their mental state. It's sad. And it was directed to one particular poster but anyone else that might think it's "funny" to watch someone so young go through that trauma.
