This is really worth watching IMO.

I hope you will take a few minutes to watch the following video of Chris Koch from Nanton Alberta.

He spends his spring, summer and fall working on a farm in Torquay Saskatchewan.

Chris runs the planter & sprayer in the spring, and then a combine in the fall.

During the winter he does some public speaking with a theme call "If I Can".

A feature video was recently done on Chris's life and farming. The video was recently shown on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Next time you are feeling down, think about Chris and what he has managed to overcome... Life ain't easy sometimes but for some instead of wallowing in self pity they just wake up and do what they can do and try and live a life worth living...

Thanks, great watch !

I once saw a report of a woman who could only lay on a bed with maximum painkillers because she had 24 hours a day 9 out 10 on the scale of pain and still had the will to live. Every time I`m starting to act like a woos, I think of her and it inspires me to man up.

Thinking about this guy can indeed do the same.

Wonderful and inspiring! It would be so much easier for him if he wore prosthetic legs though. My husband has one and can get around like anyone else. I love these types of videos where individuals don't let anything hinder them.

I had watched this a time back a bit . Not sure where and when . Any how it really speaks as to human faith being the driving force as to what we can do and not the physical restrictions . Makes you feel like flapping your arms again as a adult to see if just maybe you might be able to get off the ground :>)

This is just awesome. Sometimes when you need a life lesson it just pops up at the right time. Funny how that happens, but the almighty works in mysterious ways. He even uses ATS, imagine that
