Inspiring

Here's a feel-good story to brighten your Thursday .....

Anthony Robles won the DI National Title in Wrestling this year in his weight class.  With one leg.  To say his story of hard work, perseverance and dedication is inspiring is quite the understatement.  


I was blown away last night by not only his story, but also his maturity and his outlook on his situation.  Below is a clip of his acceptance speech last night on the ESPYS, where he was awarded the 2011 Jimmy V Award for Perseverance....I love his outlook!
