WICHITA, Kan. (May 28) - Rob Pannier, who contributes on The Sin Bin, Minor League Sports Report and does color commentary on the radio, caught up with Stephen Johnson a few weeks back.
Everyone faces adversity at some point in their life. Maybe it is the end of a relationship, the loss of a job, or the destruction of their home, but the reality is that adversity is coming your way whether you are ready for it or not.
Some crumble under the weight of this adversity. They allow the circumstance to rule or dictate them. For others, they look at this as an opportunity to grow and to thrive through the challenge. They simply decide that they will not be defined by the adversity, but by how they respond to it.
It takes a special kind of person to have that kind of attitude, the character of a true champion. Someone who finds joy in trying times and who draws on the strength of those around him or her to blossom to new heights. It takes real part, the kind of heart that Wichita Thunder forward Stephen Johnson possesses.
