Patrick Ivison An Inspiration To Us All!

For those of you who know me, you know I love inspirational stories of people who don’t let their physical limitations get them down.  I get so upset when I see able-bodied people wasting their life away by becoming inactive, overweight, and lazy.  Sometimes I feel like they should give their bodies up to someone with physical limitations who would give anything to walk, run, jump or climb, since they seem to not want to use their own bodies.

I want to thank Fit Fun Bootcamper, Meagan for sharing this story that was on the Today Show.  I would like to think that if life dealt me the hand that it dealt Patrick, I would be just as positive and determined to be the best I can be and not look at what I can’t do, but rather what I can do.

Warning:  Only watch this in a place where it is appropiate to cry!
