if he can do that i can do anything

every now and then I've come across ridiculously inspiring stories. they leave me dumbfounded and energized. with the clarity that G-d runs the world and even the most trying of challenges are opportunities for "best outcomes". we who don't have any of these limitations need to do everything possible to reach our potential. this is especially true for those of us with no formal Torah training or learning in our early years. Rabbi Weinberg, the founder of
Aish Hatorah, used to tell us to watch a guy ride a unicycle to realize that as impossible as it looks, there it is the guy is doing it right in front of everyone! so too with many of us and learning. especially Gemorah for the men. looks like Chinese written sideways. and yet 100's of thousands can do it. Hashem expects us to do it. Hashem would never ask us to do anything we cant do. this man, Paul Smith, is an indisputable role model for all of us.
