Inspired and Motivated

On the Wednesday PhilCast I talk to someone I have wanted to chat with for almost a year now. He's an athlete, but not a household name from the NFL or NBA who gets paid bundles of cash for what he does.

No, this guy isn't in it for the money or the glory, and that's one of the reasons I admire him.

His name is Dominic Gill.

Who, you ask?
I don't blame you. I had no clue as to who he was either until I received an email from a cycling friend of mine that contained a link.

It was THIS LINK.

I proceeded to watch this "Take a Seat" story, fascinated with the concept, amazed at the accomplishment and touched by the human spirit of both Dom and the riders whose worlds he changed forever.

That's a photo of Dominic and Ernie.

And so it went all across the country through all kinds of conditions and with all sorts of riders taking a seat, making the effort despite their physical shortcomings.

Some how, some way, with the use of his custom-made bike Dominic was able to take these riders places they had never been before nor could have gotten to without his help.

As you watch the story there are sad moments that go along with the triumphant ones, but those moments only make the entire story richer.

At this time of year do yourself a favor and take some time out to watch the journey and be thankful for all you have this Christmas.

Later.
