These men teach other disabled people that lifs not over. You can play a sport, follow your passion, have kids, have a wife, etc. That's a huge insparation. They do amazing things, so when I'm going through tough times I think how much they've been through and usually my problem is nothing. I also do charity work with them with Boys Team Charity which is an exciting thing to do to give back.
