A life with handicap

This Video is very upsetting and give new forces. It's not important if you have a strong or a light handicap. Each handicap can become a blessing for other people and for your family.
I've an handicap to. 6 month after I was born in France, I catch a meningitis and was at a close distance from death. After that, I had daily epilepsie attacks.'m now 55 old and have always them but I wanted live as all other people: I'm married, have 6 children. With my wife, we build a business in Germany where we can occupy young people who have health or psych. problems and can engage my own live for the people who're not strong enough... What do I want more... When G'd bless and help and you accept His help, then you have all what you need.
Many blessing for all

Watching these films open up my eyes, though, making me realize how blind I am, as well as so many others. So many of us take our talents for granted, or don't even realize what potential lies within us. What's sad about this film is how some of us need such people in order for us to realize how special we are. Such people should make us all thank Hashem for ginving us all that we take for granted. If these people can do it, why can't we? The next time I feel like saying "I can't" or "I'm not special", I will remember Patrick, and say "I can." Patrick and his father are my true heroes.

I am so impressed

Rabbi Cohen wrote me I should look at this video. I looked three times. I am impressed and moved. And I can only thank Hashem that He created somebode so wonderful. I can not say: "In spite of", I have the feeling, it is just perfect as it is. Baruch Hu!
