PostSubject: maybe this will inspire you, I know it inspired me   Mon Aug 24, 2009 11:18 am

I remember my aunt telling me about Nico, the boy featured in these two articles a couple of years ago because he's a friend of my cousin, and I didn't really think of him again until this year until my cousin mentioned Nico again when my dad was talking about climbing Mount Washington in New Hampshire. I found these two articles about Nico online, and they've inspired me a little to not give up, and maybe they'll do the same for someone else, because I know this boy has had a lot more to overcome than I have.

Wow Kristina, that is truly incredible. I really enjoyed reading both those articles and learning more about Nicolai and his father. What an amazing family!! Thanks so much for sharing this. Thumbsup

you're welcome. I enjoyed reading both of these stories too. I remember reading the first story I posted a link to in the newspaper when I was visiting my cousins, back when the story was new, and I remember thinking "This is pretty neat" I'm glad others enjoyed it

I first posted about this a few years ago now, but since then I've watched a more recent video about this young man that I thought I'd share. Seeing all of the things he can do makes me think, why am I not out doing more?


Here is a link to the video and article from October 2012:

Oh, I remember reading about him when you posted this several years ago! What an incredible young man he is. It really does make you think, doesn't it Kristina? How he is doing things with one leg that most of us never even consider??? I LOVE how he said "Let them try how they do on the crutches and see if it's an advantage, then we'll go from there." Good for HIM. Who the heck would actually think that?! I got goose bumps when I saw him kick that goal, btw...just thinking about how that had to feel for him---his first varsity goal! Applause

I am going to share this article with my sons. Thanks for posting this update!! Thumbsup

You're welcome! Smile I like how he said, "You can either look at what you were given, or what was taken from you." That really makes me think. So many people spend too much time dwelling on what they don't have, and Nico goes out with what he does have, and he can do amazing things. I can't imagine how good he must have felt after scoring his first varsity goal!
