By the way, I`m not Christian in any way yet I found the song very suiting for the video.
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.
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.
P.S. I wish MY dad was like that. mine dislocated my shoulder on thursday
Not much to see here people!
You see I had a friend who`s sister was disabled. All she wanted was to go to Disneyland, just the one day. So everybody raised money and then there were these problems with the traveling agency..After two weeks she was finaly allowed to go...and then she past on...So, she didn`t get her day afer all...So this was great to see. I showed my friend btw, she loved it!
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.
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.
aw wow, thats seriously the best dad in the world.
snaps to him! <3
thats the true definition of DAD
Because we all know that Professor Stephen Hawking did jack all.
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.
There was another man how felt the same way you do. His name was Adolph Hitler. Perhaps you have heard of him?
I don`t care what place they took that day, they won.
btw my sister is mentally disabled so just shut up downinit. I wish you were in that kid`s position and then we`d see how you feel.
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.`
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.
But I`m no angel. When I read the description, my very first thought was "now THAT`S a handicap"
STILL, I HAD TO FLICK A TEAR FROM MY EYE...
it didnt cure my boredom, but it was still nice to see.
it did touch me, in a way only `the green mile` has been able to do!
I`m not immature! I though that dad was wonderful and it was very touching. Seriously.
Some argue that he is exploting his son. Not me. Just saying what is said.
As for the people with their rude, ignorant remarks, I can only hope somebody comes along one day and knocks some sense into you.
Lost my dad when I was 11..so it hits a chord with me.
But it looks like something Willow Creek would show. Grr.
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 swear to god this place is turnung gay. If its not friggin vids of kittens every day now its cripples. i-am-gay.com
Downinit is entitled to his own opinion if he wants to be a bigot let him be one; it`s his right.
and DownInIt can go to hell.
But sweet story and everything.
this is a awesome story, and a real definiton of a loving father
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.
Ya, I know I`m going to hell.
And screw you axe.
