Jerry Brown wrote about fatherhood, a slower life

The imprint we make on social media often allows a window into our thoughts.

And the late Jerry Brown recently wrote on Facebook about the prospect of becoming a father, and wanting to live a slower life.

In a post dated Nov. 29, Brown wrote about a life away from the spotlight.

“Sometimes when I actually get a chance to get away from football I think of how bad I want a family (wife, children) and how the fast life isn’t as fun as it use to be after living it for so long,” he wrote.

He also mentioned “my lil one coming soon,” adding a layer to the avoidable tragedy that unfolded this morning on a Dallas highway.
