...which of course disputes all the doomsayers that predict the coming self-inflicted extinction of the human race.

Another story to make me feel thankful every morning.

The kid may wear a yellow belt, but he's got Black Belt spirit...

Cole's mom Michelle sent me this email -

"Hi, Matt!

I stumbled across your blog by accident...

I'm Cole's mom, the kid with CP who got his yellow belt last month! Everybody wrote such nice things! Very sweet.

Cole was asked to participate in a show by the BBC called "My Life As A Child" and they video taped the birthday party/yellow belt test. It's supposed to air some time in the spring on The Learning Channel. Would you like me to let you know when it's going to be on?

Please tell all your bloggers we sure appreciate all the lovely thoughts!

Michelle"

I would love to know when that is coming on, and I'm sure many others here would, too.

I would love to see his story. Reading it's one thing, actually seeing it is another! She is lucky to have such a great son!

That just proves my belief that the mind and the spirit are more important than being physically strong. Great story.

Update -

I just got this email from Cole's mom Michelle:

"Hi, Matt...

The BBC's six part series, My Life As A Child, begins airing February 26. I'm not sure which hour will have Cole in it, but it's a great, inspiring show with a ton of amazing kids. He gets his yellow belt during the show. It airs on The Learning Channel.

Michelle Massie"


I am looking forward to it.
