Henry's Death a Lesson To All of Us

The death of Chris Henry has shocked many today.

Henry, 26, was killed from injuries he sustained when he fell out of the back of a truck Wednesday evening. 

Henry was said to have turned his life around after a rough patch in his first few years in the league. Multiple arrests led to his release from Cincinnati in 2008, but the Bengals brought him back that year because of injuries to their receiving corps.

This is just a note to anyone who reads this.

Please make smart decisions. Surround yourselves with the right people. Don't make careless mistakes.

This was a young man who started to cut the corner and become a better human being before he was taken from us way too soon.

I'm not trying to tell you how to live your lives, but I hope you can all learn something from this terrible incident.

My thoughts and prayers are with anyone who was affected by this tragedy.

R.I.P. Chris Henry
