Speaking of Skiing....Kevin Pearce

On the topic of skiing, and with the Olympics coming to the end, I wanted to share this interview between Tom Brokaw and Kevin Pearce. Pearce was on track to battle Shaun White in the halfpipe (snowboarding) in the Olympics until he suffered a brain injury when falling on New Year's Day, 2010. Brokaw shares interviews with Pearce before his accident, as well as some great interviews with his family. Pearce's brother, David, who has Down syndrome, was interviewed and the family's words about his influence on the family during this crisis are very touching. View the video by clicking HERE.
