Some of my buddies just don't get it, I am not strapped down, I am not going to let my disablitity be well disabling.
I was given a bad hand, I guess, when I was thirteen, and accident changed my life, forever. I was skateboarding, and hit the ramp hard, landed on my back, breaking it, damaging my spinal cord.
Some thought I would never again skateboard, but I was determined to prove them wrong. I loved the way skateboarding made me feel, and I loved to feel like I was flying.
I may not be able to walk anymore, due to the spinal cord injury, but I am not strapped down to this chair. I am seventeen now, I drive, and yes I skateboard, I can do some amazing tricks.
Some of my friends just think I am crazy, but I don't see myself as crazy, I just happen to love the feel of flying, and I feel like that when I am performing tricks on the skateramp from my chair.
I also happen to believe God wants more for me than to sit around and feeling sorry for myself. He wants me to use what happened to me, to show others that with God the impossible becomes possible.
Pretty heavy stuff I know.
