Dave Nelson of Omaha, Neb., wheeled over to me as I was leaving the track events of the Endeavor Games at Edmond North High School.  Nelson was injured in a car accident several years ago and this was his first Endeavor Games. He wanted to tell me how great the event was and how he was excited to tell his friends, family and doctors back home about it. But most of all he wanted to show me his tattoo he got before traveling to Oklahoma for the games. “You have to have a sense of humor,” he said.
