I confess – I am a Facebook convert. I enjoy checking in with old friends, former students, family members in far off places, etc. I also enjoy seeing what other folks find interesting and worthwhile to read or watch. This is *definitely* one of those videos that you never forget.
As a parent of a special needs child, I will tell you that it deeply touched my heart and soul. I thrilled to see what this young man accomplished even while feeling a slight bit of envy that my own son has not had a moment like this in his lifetime – *yet* – but it”s all about being determined and never giving up.
Be forewarned – you’ll need some kleenex.
