    I am simply lost for words. Something that usually doesn't happen to me very much.

    What an inspiration is all that I can come up with and that doesn't even come close.

    Simply Awesome. Mom always said if life deals you lemons your gonna have to make lemonade. He sure did that. Kinda makes you feel bad for complaining when things don't go your way that's for sure.

    Amen, and what about his father? Do you think he could have overcome, and achieved, and attained where he is today without that rock, that force, that Solomon guiding him and fueling his ambition? Yes, Richie is an inspiration, but I am equally awed by his father, and my highest aspiration is that I can be such a man for my children.

    Unless life also deals you sugar and water all you're gonna have is lemon juice, though.

    Great story about Richie Parker though (although... and I'm just keeping it real here... if I knew I was going to be on national TV typing with my feet I'd go get a pedicure).

    Definitely inspirational. Ritchie is amazing, but you have to give his parents a ton of credit for helping him become the man that he is.
