    I heard about this. That guy told his father that he wanted to compete in the Iron man so His father trained with him for years. He also built the bike attachment and stuff. That has to be one the the most caring Fathers I`ve seen.

    I actually was there to see that race and it was pretty cool when he did finish, about 15 hours after starting. Way bigger cheers from the crowd than when the winner finished (around 8.5 hours)

    The video is from that year`s Ironman Hawaii show (It won an emmy), and all the commentary, voiceover and real music was deleted for this new song.

    There are some very insensitive people here. I just hope that you never have to deal with anything like this in your life time. I know that you are all still kids (13-17yrs) so are still very immature but this man has done something amazing and you just say you are bored or some derogatory remark. Well, I hope that you grow up someday and can appreciate what this Dad has done for his son. For me I think this was a real achievement and good for him!

    I am impressed with the father, not only to care/love for his son enough to consider it, but to be able to physically get himself, and his son through the Ironman, damn impressive.

    For all those haters out there - do you think you could swim 2.4 miles with a boat w/ kid in it, Bike 112 mi. and run 26.2 miles. I would think not, but still everyone is entitled to an opinion.

    I hate how you people (by which I mean Mad Eye Pete) say that 13-17 year olds are immature and act as if we`re stupid and don`t understand. There are a select few dumbasses on this site and not all of them are 13-17, look at -Jaz-, he calls this place gay and yet seeing as he`s a member he`s saying that he visits www.i-am-gay.com. Anyway it`s not fair to stereotype an age group because of a few dumbasses. I hope YOU grow up some day to realise that we`re people too. Anyway, I think the father is a hero, it`s a touching story.

    ok, the music is the entire message for the most part.
    even the two in the movie... there was an intreview. the father said he credits everything to God, that he wouldnt have achieved anything if it werent for God.
    its sort of an example about how God loves us, how even though we have a "disability" compared to him,(especially Ajikan. sorry couldnt resist.) that hes still willing to help us overcome those.

    I`ve seen stuff on tv about this father and son and everytime it sends chills up my spine. It`s an incredible story. I`m a big fan of the Iron Man competition and it amazes me how the father could complete the whole thing with his son. Incredible.

    As for the people with their rude, ignorant remarks, I can only hope somebody comes along one day and knocks some sense into you.

    This guy is a local celebrity in Massachusetts. He runs the Boston Marathon with his son every year. I guess the first time he started running with his son he said something about feeling like he was flying so they kept it up ever sense.

    Some argue that he is exploting his son. Not me. Just saying what is said.

    Awesome-- didn`t cry but I sure felt touched. The whole reason I like IAB is that unlike all the other sites out there there is a wide range of stuff here that isn`t always about laughing at other`s misfortune (although sometimes it is about that) and I think that`s why most people are visitors to this site. But no matter where you go, especially on the net, you`re gonna have some naysayers. I`m happy to see so many positive comments vs. the negative ones though. Oh, and downinit: I wouldn`t care about your calloused remarks except that you call yourself a Christian on your profile. What a joke.

    I didn`t hear the music, but let me say I`m not too soft hearted when it come to other people but just watching this without the music made me cry. I don`t think that too many people who are grateful to be able to wake up in the morning and feed yourself and do things without the help of a wheelchair or a respitory machine. I could go on but I won`t cause I don`t want to preach. But I`ll say this much; I know that I`m happy that I am able to breathe, eat, walk and wipe my own ass..cause there sure are alot of people who can`t.

And to thoes insensitive people out there, just, go drat off, what this man did for his son was a daring, heroic move, he made his son`s dream come true! so go drat yerselves.

    That was incredibly touching- I don`t express nor show feeling that often and that had me in tears. For you IMBECILIES with the crass & rude comments- we all know your trying to get a rise & say it for shock value, yeah- that was old 20 mins ago. In other words that you dummkopf (that means IDIOTS) can FU*K off. NO one asked for your comments. We realize your lives are so deprived & a severe lack of education are partly to blame for the risible & unnecessary comments- The other half I blame on inbreeding. In close, that was a great story & I`m glad that it`s making headlines to see what a Father`s love means to his son.

    you know i think this might be a bit unpopular. all of u guys who are saying that people who have made negative remarks about the story are uneducated or insensitive need to take a look in the mirror. everyone is entitled to thier own opinion whether this is negative or positive and to slate someone because their opinion doesnt conform to the acceptable view is unnacceptable in my eyes. dont`t get me wrong im not encouraging them but i think positive discrimination has a role to play as well. i personally have used a wheelchair since the age of ten, i have the same disorder that i think the guy in the film does, its called muscular dystrophy and basically means most of my muscles dont work properly, fortunately the brain is not a muscle so i am perfectly able to reason and speak for myself. however the thing that really annoys me is not someone who verbalises a negative reaction, because normally they`re just scared and dont know how to react, but someone who thinks that being nicey

    nice and trying to protect people in wheelchairs from the "dangers of the world" is the correct way to behave and assuming that we cannot fight our own battles. this is my one grievance and as it is very widespread its hard to avoid that wrapped up in cotton wool feeling. but seriously next time you meet someone in a wheelchair dont just assume they want a door opening ask first in a non condescending manner and while your at it maybe try some conversation, you might find out that we`re not scary and we really are capable of polite conversation (please excuse me if you bump into me on a bad day). take care

    It is not a matter really of not being able to have your own opinion. However, the disrespectful comments such as "Fu**ing cripple...", "Retard...", "That was funny seeing the loser guy..." Etc are needless to say unnecessary more over inappropriate. I highly doubt the purpose of this video was to get a laugh out of those who are cruel & to the disabled. There are PLENTY of other videos & such to comment on rather then taking a touching video & cheapen it by ignorant and/or mean comments. Period.

    In responce to some comments above; I do not feel sorry for the disabled. I see them as nothing but social parasites. It`s people like these that are a burden on our economy. I mean, we have to spend so much just to support these freaks.

    I`ll say this. I was very touched by that. I thought it was beautiful and a wonderful thing to watch...and I even like the song.

    But I`m no angel. When I read the description, my very first thought was "now THAT`S a handicap"

    Id just like to ask downinit if you`ve ever even talked to a disabled person or can comprehend the challenges we face. i would love to have a job and feel socially "useful" to society and i hate the thought that people who do work and pay tax have to support me every day. however though i obviously cant comment on canada in britain a lot more money is spent every year on problems caused by the consumption of alcohol and drugs and the fraudulent exploitation of the benefits system than is used to support the disabled community. i wonder if it would be at all possible for you to imagine how you would support yourself if god forbid you were in an accident or developed a disease that put you into a wheelchair. would you have the humility, patience and strength to deal with it? never mind being able to support yourself financially could you deal with having to rely on someone purely to get out of bed in the morning? i somehow highly doubt you have the strength of mind or body to c

    OK DownInIt, what are we meant to do with them? Dig a hole and throw them in it, just because they can`t do some things as well as others? Disabled people are still people.

    I found this on the net:

    When Rick Hoyt was 15, he communicated something to his father that changed both their lives. "Dad," the mute quadriplegic wrote in his computer after his father pushed him in a wheelchair in a five-kilometer race, "I felt like I wasn`t handicapped."

    "They told us to put Rick away, in an institution, (because) he`s going to be nothing but a vegetable for the rest of his life," his father remembers.

    For more than 20 years, Dick has either towed, pushed or carried Rick in a string of athletic challenges including every Boston Marathon since 1981 and, most recently, last month`s Ironman Triathlon World Championships in Hawaii.

    `The biggest smile you ever saw in your life.`

    To the person who found that video, thank you for posting it on here. I am sure I would probably have never seen it if someone hadn`t done as such. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    "but seriously next time you meet someone in a wheelchair dont just assume they want a door opening ask first in a non condescending manner"
    ok so its ok to open a door for a person that can walk, but not for a person who cant?
    if i open a door for someone, its to be nice. not because i feel sorry, and not because i pity them.

    This is beautiful. IAB can be proud of itself for sharing something as affirming as this.

    So the music is contemporary Christian music...so what? If it reaches you, turn it up; if it doesn`t, go to Start>Control Panel>Sounds, Speech, and Audio, and click Mute in one of several places. It`s not meant to offend anybody.

    So the son couldn`t do anything...I wondered a while about the significance of his involvement, but can you imagine being physically incapable of cycling, swimming, and running, and having your athletically able father take you along on his journey, to see the sights and feel the sun on your face just like he does?

    Now THAT rocks.

    Hey for all you people who dislike this, seriously, F@$k yourselves. Im sorry, but i doesnt matter what kind of music they used, who gives a poo? Would playing something Muslim help? losers. And what the hell, with all the anti-cripple sentiments? Its sad when people have a self-hating Disorder, they look badly upon themselves, cuz only freaging morons whose only excuse as to avoid being a failure from a society is to hide and call themselves disabled can be so stupid as to be so hateful and judgemental. Its great that man worked so hard for his son, they both have something to work hard for and wait for, your freaks only means of focus and something to work hard for involves waiting for ur next Issue of Penthouse to come. Most of us can agree, your a failed Human being, its funny if u call THEM a drain on society.

    Great vid. I can`t believe the small-mindedness of some of the comments here. If you didn`t like the video, fair play, but posting `f--king cripples`? Downinit, you really need to get out in to the world, son. Does being such a c--t take practice or is it natural to you?

    OK, the music was cheesy, but the video was very inspiring. Regardless of whether you`re religious or athiest, that was something that showed love in the face of adversity. Truly remarkable.

    I smiled when the guy singing got to the jesus part. Didn`t really see the point. It didn`t break my heart and I didn`t get touched nor inspired. Actually, I sat the first two minutes expecting it to be a joke (my belief was fueled by the jesus-song). When I realized what it was, I was disapointed.

    Wow, that was amazing, most people would be lucky to have a dad half that dedicated. That father is such an inspiration, and this definitely brought tears to my eyes. Everyone should just ignore all the rude comments, the people who post them are idiots and aren`t worthy of a reaction. But, mayiaskwho, not all atheists are bad people. In fact, most of us aren`t. Just because I don`t believe in a god doesn`t mean I don`t know the difference between right and wrong, and it doesn`t mean that I don`t care about anything. But that whole story is really amazing.

    1) It was a pretty cool movie (did not enjoy the music )
    2) why does ANYONE care what ANYONE says about it? does it really matter if some kid or some wierdo person that lives hundreds of miles away from you says?
    3) the "mean people" aren`t neccesarilly mean just because you say they are mean or don`t agree doesnt mean they are wrong no one can ever say they have the right opinion ( but some people in my opinion went alittle to far )
    4) OMGOD you "I love jesus" people need to be quiet because half of your poo your saying is b/sing on the "mean people" if your so into jesus you wouldn`t use words like fag and you know what . . . religion doesn`t effect how you feel about things you can be christian and hate crippled if you want who the pancakes cares?
    5) who says you should even listen to me?

    I`m still wondering if the son is cripled retarded or both? And the son didn`t do anything anyway, he just sat there and added extra labor to the father.

    If you think I`m being cynical about this then it`s probably because of the torture of sitting in a hot sweaty church listening to everyone sing that song over and over again.

    You see now this is whats wrong with america!..anyone on the radio or the tube can say poo,bitch,hoe,doublefisting and crap like that and its a OK! but dont anyone dare say the J(jesus) word much less the G (GOD) word..because somehow that would offend someone ..well you know what..thats bullcrap! everyone in this country could use a little bit of god and jesus anyday of the week man i mean come on!!! REPRIORITAZE WHAT REALLY IS THAT OFENDS U!! ...and to all of u guys saying this is lame....this man just set an example...i dare YOU to do the same!...go on ...do it now!! GOD knows we need it!...so before we are ALL to quick to judge lets ask ourselvs what the F"·% we have done latley that can be characterized as nearlyy good or decent......lets take this as an example....and make ourselves a little less sinical, and a lot more open to what we have to offer as human beings as oposed to judging those who do much more than we do by actualy DOING something!..peace all!

    That was really touching. And yes-- I will admit I cried. Even though I`m Christian, it wasnt` the song-- it was the story of the dad and his son. The love and dedication it took him to help his son into the race and complete it is one of the sweetest things I`ve ever seen. I praise the dad for doing it, and the son for being very grateful and happy. It was just plain beautiful! =-)

    This would have touched me and so if it wasn`t for that song, it just brings back HORRIBLE memories.

    Downinit, you have only to run into someone like me one day, and I`d be happy to make you a "cripple" too.

    What that father did was amazing! And shames me for every time one of my kids has wanted something, even something trivial, that I did not put my best effort into.

    Very inspirational. And those that make crass remarks are usually people that don`t handle feelings of being veunerable, so instead make a crass remark. Maybe if their fathers had been more in touch with them like this this father was.

    IF YOU COULD REALLY PUT YOURSELVES IN THIS FATHERS SHOES THE RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE COMMENTS WOULD NOT BE POSTED. THIS IS A TRUE TESTEMENT OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT OF LOVE BETWEEN FATHER AND SON.

    Such a touching video. I admire the father for being able to do something so great for his son. It makes me feel ashamed of myself for never seeming to care enough.

    By the way, I`m not Christian in any way yet I found the song very suiting for the video.

    I think everything positive that could be said has been said at this point. However, I just wanted to be included with everyone who was moved by that fathers love and dedication. We certainly could use more fathers like that in this crazy world. And for all of the parents that are giving your all to your children, I praise you as well. You certainly don`t need a child with a disability to be an excellent parent. You may not make the news or be on TV, but how you`ll touch someone`s life like only you can...
