I think I've heard that one before!

As a teacher of many years I believe I may have heard every possible excuse for why a student did not meet his or her responsibility. I love this video and will show it from now on to each student who proffers up an excuse. Thank you Aish for bringing this to my attention. I am sure there are many other teachers out there who feel the same way. Kudos to the athlete in the video. He is a true hero.

I wish I never said that

How often do we all say at least one of those excuses? NOT just because we're too _____(fill in the blank) to play sports or exercises a little more. But every part of our lives are filled with such silly little excuses. Being part of the Jewish people means that we live as a driven people. May we all learn the lesson that giving into excuses is just a watered down way of life. Just do it.

I Love This

Just do it indeed! What a great commercial - and public service. By the way, that man is not pretending to be a wheelchair user for the ad. Roll it Brother!
