To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.

Hang in there, Richard!

Who in the WORLD deserves to be shot FOURTEEN TIMES????? Whoever it was that did this, sure as hell knew how to ruin a great football career. Unbelievable. Think before you use guns, people, they just make you STUPID. I hope he gets through this, although I don't know how that's possible. Good luck, Mr. Collier, some people are thinking of you tonight :)

Sad to say, but if he never played football, nobody would even care. This stuff happens every day, but when it happens to people who are famous, it makes news and people all over will be praying for him.
They should be praying for all the people who are in this condition, not just because they are famous.

Well he wasn't in "the hood" when he was shot. It seems obvious that someone was out to end his NFL career though. With 14 shots, one would think someone would be dead. My thoughts are with him and his family, hoping that he has a speedy recovery.

Sad....
Wishing him well. Be thankful for survival. Maybe it isn't quite enough but since we do not know what is on the other side....just gotta take what you have left. Godspeed baby.
