VIDEO: Inspired to Greatness! Watch This

Greatness comes to those who persevere. Those who rise up to the challenge before them. Reaching deep inside ourselves we find the courage and strength to carry on.

Every once in a while someone accomplishes something that makes the world take notice. This one happens to be caught on tape. I challenge you to watch this video. This video portrays one man's love and devotion for his son.

You will be inpspired... You will be moved to tears... You will want to pass this on!

  1. That indeed is one inspiring video. Although I have watched the video a few times and I have their story and video at my site too, they never stopped to amaze me. Most people will think twice about running a marathon and yet together they conquered countless marathons. Most inspiring is the great love that the father shown for his son.

  4. This man is very inspirational. I saw an interview w/ him once. He said he did what he did because he wanted for his son what every child has the opportunity for. To be able to run a race.

  5. The larger the obstacle the greater the final success! What you can see yourself achieving - is exactly what you WILL achieve! This is more positive proof of that!

    Great great great!!!

  16. I so love this video. I have watched it several times, our Pastor played it in our church. I tear up each time I see it because of the thought of what this man went through, so that his son could have his dream.. What love.. I only hope to be this way for my children and grandchildren. Thank-you!
