On a happier note...

A friend of mine just sent this to me - I had to share it here. So touching, amazing, brought tears to my eyes:)

'A glimpse of the remarkable father-son bond of Dick and Rick Hoyt, and their inspirational journey together in a triathlon and life itself. The goal of Team Hoyt is to integrate the physically challenged into everyday life. One way to accomplish this is to educate the able-bodied, making them more aware of the issues that the disabled face every day. Another is by actively helping the disabled to participate in activities that would otherwise be inaccessible to them. Team Hoyt targets both of these areas.'

Okay... I watched it with no sound and I'm just bawling all over the place! What a fantastic video and wonderful tribute! It should humble all of us and make us count our blessings!
Way cool!

The music and the video are very touching...I agree with Joni. Makes me proud of mankind; civilization is exhibited at its best and jubilant state. Love you, Mom
