    Awesome story man! A hero isn't someone who plays sports, makes movies, or music. It are people who step up beyond the expected and make a difference in one or multiple lives. You are a hero! I hope I am at least half the father you are.

    Things like this make me feel low. The things I could be doing with myself and my family. I'm lazy and don't spend as much time doing the things I need to with my wife and kids. I don't do 100% like I should. This man rose above the bad and made something good out of it. I ask myself when I see things like this, "What the fuck is wrong with me?" I admire men like this and wish I could be more like them.
