I borrowed this quote from Jeremy Lim's website.

Who's Jeremy Lim? Go to the website.

http://www.jeremylim.com/old/

For those of us who have the good fortune to be able to train in the MA discipline of choice, it's always necessary to keep things in perspective.

Perseverance is the keystone for what I & many of you do. Jeremy is a prime example of this essential quality. He truely has the heart of a MA-ist.

I like he.

I've been appreciating stories like his a lot more recently, and trying to take advantage of everything that comes my way. Considering the everyday 'problems' that most of us complain about, we should compare to his daily adversity and wonder why we don't achieve a lot more.

Well, that quote is really appropriate for the kid.
I find it an inspiring story, and I understand why you want more people to read it.
