Steve Gleason to Times-Picayune fans and staffers: "No White Flags"

When former New Orleans Saints player, current ALS fighter and forever fan favorite Steve Gleason posted this inspirational commentary to a private Facebook group called “Friends of The Times-Picayune Editorial Staff,” it immediately drew scores of “likes” and 40 grateful comments within the small, tight-knit group. Many wrote that Gleason’s take puts the situation of scaled back publication and job cuts at the T-P in perspective while offering hope for those facing major change and challenges. The Lens editors felt a broader audience would appreciate Gleason’s words, reprinted here with permission from Team Gleason.
