An Amazing Young Man at his High School Graduation (video)
What a heart warming story this is. It's a story of courage and perseverance.
This young man, run over by a car at 14-months-old and paralyzed from the waist down, Patrick Ivison, never let his disability stop him. In fact, he learned how to kayak, ski, play rugby and even surf. And now he has one more amazing feat to add to his accomplishments, at his high school graduation on Tuesday.
I don't know about you but I have tears in my eyes after watching that.
Patrick has accomplished so much in his young life, and vowed three years ago that he would walk across the stage and accept his high school diploma at graduation. So, he began intensive physical therapy to increase the strength of his muscles and build coordination.
As you could see, on Tuesday he did it. Patrick walked to accept his diploma with the help of a trainer and specially-made walker.
