An Amazing Boy

So...I was going to post my race report for the Victoria Goddess Run that I did today, but I saw this video and had to post about it.  As the video unfolded, I started doing an extreme ugly cry replete with sobbing and actually had to get up and get myself a kleenex to stem the flow of tears as they rolled down my face.  So of course I have to share with you all so I'm not the only one sitting at my computer, bawling my face off.  Ha! 

The video is about a boy with spastic cerebral palsy who is doing a short run for his school's field day.  Now I'm not going to spoil what happens, but if you don't cry or aren't at least a tiny bit touched by this video, you have no soul.  It truly makes me believe in mind over matter and not giving up...this is how the world is supposed to be.

They were showing this on TV this weekend and I'll admit to it having the same effect on me. It's just beautiful.
