Let’s Start Climbing Together

So last week I posted about how people view disability. I am feeling really inspired lately and thought I would write another blog post. I invite you to check out the following video. In the video you will meet Spencer West, a young man who was told he would never walk. He was told he would never be a functioning member of society, but made the choice to never give up. Spencer has no legs, but he does not let that stop him from having a vision and to pursue something he is passionate about. He and his friends decide to climb the largest mountain in Africa and through this process she learns different important lessons. One big lessons he learns is to ask for help. He explains that asking for help is not a sign of weakness ,but rather a characteristic that makes a strong leader. Everyone needs help, we are not expected to know everything. We all need supports from different people. Check out this video. I pretty much smile during the entire video. Leave a comment or two about your thoughts.
