wow. Amazing how he kept pushing. A lot of heart shown there, much to be proud of.


On a side note, I saw on some show the other day a stand-up comic with cerebral palsy. Good to see individuals not letting things they have no control over stop them from living their lives and doing what they love.

Is "Blue" a coincidence here?

Brother John,
Everytime I see that video I just have to smile & wipe back a tear.

You are a rough dude, and can kick major asp, but you also have the passionate side to take on a challenge like Blue.

Your students and others need to know just what kind of an obligation and commitment it takes to work with special needs students.

I know GGM Gaylord & Prof Yoshii are proud of the quality instructor you have become, and I am honored to call you my brother.

Take care, and keep being you..!!
