Hey ATS!

I stumbled upon this little video, and really, I found it touching.
Its about this old vet (Arthur), who was told that he would never be able to walk, and then ofcourse no running either, after all his parachute training.

The doctors told him.
NO one would help him with yoga training, except one guy.

I recommend you to watch it:

140 lbs in 10 months, wow.
This guy is incredible.
I got some back problems myself, but not as bad as Arthur's though. But I can imagine what he has been through, and he is one tough badass.

The human body is so strong, and your mind is even stronger people, use it

Thought it was something everyone could use a little off!

And yes, it also gave me tears in my eye.
I couldn't even see that it was the same man in the end of the video! (that was not because of the tears though)

Awesome video & message, thanks for sharing!

I probably wouldn't have believed it without the footage, but it just shows when we direct our will constructively what is possible.
They should play this round the clock in hospitals, re-hab centres etc. Anywhere ,& everywhere hope is needed.

That's amazing! That's a long time to walk on crutches. I didn't really expect him to run but am happy that he did. I would have cried but there are too many folks around. LOL!

A winner is just a loser that got up one more time. That's not my quote but its a good one.
