    That link gave me problems and found a simplified link better - so have edited your original one.

    That video is simply outstanding - something for us to think on when things seem not so good. That is a father with absolute love and dedication.

    Many thx for the chance to view that I am humbled.

    Thanks Dimmak for the post. I remember seeing a news article on Dateline, or simular show several years ago about the two of them. That was before my son was born. It takes on a whole new meaning now that I have a son of my own.

    They are "HEROS" in anyone’s book.

    I remember seeing them do the ironman, absolutely amazing. As a husband of a wife handicapped by MS I feel closer to the handicapped folks who do feats most people would never try. Ever watch the handicapped competiters in an ironman? They have a level of commitment and discipline that is beyond belief. I guess I'm lucky in that my son is a healthy man but I've learned the commitment of sticking with a handicapped person you love. It will teach you things about love and commitment that the world in general will never comprehend, just like that dad.

    The only thing that really hits the hole in my heart is seeing a dad or a father's heart for his family. It kinda causes my allergies to get kicked up.

    Honestly, I do not consider handicapped people any diffrent . I grew up with my mother wheelchair bound, since before I was born. She managed to raise 3 boys and take care of the household chores.
    Some folks use their weaknesses as a excuse, the good ones cope and overcome best they can.
