Grab Your Tissues.

I came across this video on my fitness Tumblr account. So beautiful and inspiring. People like this man are why I want to be a nurse--to give patients inspiration and hope when they have none.

(A nurse wasn't involved in his story in any way, but I think it's up to my generation of new nurses to take health care to the next level, beyond an allopathic view, and to bring light to the darkness.)

I saw this a week ago over on FB. Makes me bitch less about my back after the wreck, I'll tell you. A great story.

Oh man. When he starts running at the end ...

Joshua said...

Exactly, Matthew. That was an awesome moment.

Wow! What an amazing and powerful video! I just absolutely loved this. And, yes, I did start crying when I saw him running. :) Thanks for posting this, Summer!

Thanks for sharing this. My husband has issues walking (not overweight) and I'm going to see if he'll watch this too.

That. Is. Amazing. I need people like this to remind me to stop bitching about the little things in life and get a move on.

Chills, tears, the whole nine yards. This is awe-inspiring.

Oh, I so shouldn't have watched that here at the office! What an AMAZING video - thank you so much for sharing!

We blogged very similar posts today - I'm grateful for people like you and my sister, who will bring a new way of thinking to the nursing profession.

So glad to have come across your blog in the Blog Me MAYbe blog fest!
