Had two neck operations, feeling a little down because I can’t do what I did before. This makes me look at things a new way,a challenge to be overcome. You are never too old to learn and this is a good example. Thanks Jim for posting it…....Bill

We all take what we have for granted including not being in constant pane. I know my perspective would be totally different if I had to suffer day and night with constant pain like many do. I’m grateful I don’t have to suffer what must be hell and my thoughts and prayers go out to those who have to live with that anguish.

This fellow is like a lighthouse on a stormy shore, just waiting to save you and bring you home. I feel safer and stronger after watching this video and I have a higher regard for someone who may have less in a physical way but more to offer us in a courageous and human way.
