    we all have excuses why we can not do this or that - but, people like Richie Parker lead the way to find a solution to the challenge
     
  8. I met Richie at the Charlotte swap meet several years ago when he was talking to my friend Mike about some parts, he was with another man and after seeing the video I believe it was his father.

    This video makes me feel like a jerk when I complain that something is too hard to do, Richie has fought a up hill battle his entire life and doesn't let anything stand in his way.

    The man and his family are truly inspirational. HRP
     
  9. We should not complain! Get story of inspiration.

    Danny sent me a link to this video and it is inspirational, The young man comes from a good family that supported him and he has excelled because he doesn't consider himself as handicapped.

    Richie has no boundaries.

    Thanks for posting. This is the type of stuff I always tried to show my students. Now that I'm retired I'm going to have to pass this on to some colleagues to show.
