I'm sure all you Steelers fans out there have already heard about Ben Roethlisberger's motorcycle accident. I wish him a full recovery. Many people have spoken out before and after this accident about Ben's not wearing a helmet. I wonder why no one mentioned to him that he is a role model to many children and teenager's and with that comes the responsibility of doing the right thing even though you don't like to. Most kids say it's too sweaty to wear a helmet, or to heavy or any other excuse. They of course have to wear it anyway. This fact could be reinforced by the people who are public figures and the choices they make. Maybe someone should remind Ben it is no longer all about him.
