He is a wonderful human being!

I found it very worthwhile to hear him speak, and his ability, to express the love, to joke, to find his way to the "light" in every way, is something to behold.

Humbled to tears!

There are few words to express the joy this man has just brought to me! I am humbled to tears to think how EASY my life is & how blessed I am to be well & alive. I only pray to Hashem to grant me such humor, such faith, such peace & acceptance of what is and what I am given each & every day of my life! thank you thank you thank you

I wish I could be so funny

I have been a quadriplegic for 7 years, and everyday I am grateful to Hashem that I'm still alive. I try to live life with a smile, and can only dream of being as funny as this guy!! He's a real inspiration.

This man is such an inspiration to me. I was born with a heart defect and I don't think that I have ever blamed Gd for giving it to me. I'm just so happy to be alive. This man put into words what many are unable to do
