I absolutely love pieces / videos like these. It forces me to take a step back and really look at my life, and remind myself how beautiful it is (and also how cheesy I sound). We live in a kick-ass country, filled with inspiring and incredible people, who want nothing more than to simply make this place a better home for everyone to live in.
And while I feel like videos similar to these often have the potential to make us feel bad about our lives (cue tweets from #firstworldproblems) and how much we take for granted, it instead only heightens the appreciation we all (should) have regarding where we are in life. It has never been more true than today that no matter what your skin color, gender, sexual orientation, mental abilities, ethnicity, and so on, if we want to do something, we can.
And we will.
So cheers to Tim! You rock. Hugs all around!
PS: Congrats on all of your Olympic medals – Michael Phelps got nothin’ on you.
