In the midst of learning how to use Blogger, I forgot to write that on Friday, I saw "Invincible", the story of former Philadelphia Eagle Vince Papale (played by Mark Wahlberg), a 30-year-old teacher and bartender who made the team when coach Dick Vermeil held an open tryout.
With the NFL season looming, I was so inspired by the film that I wanted to get out of my wheelchair and tackle someone! Actually, it made me want to hurry up and finish writing my book. I really identified with Papale's drive to make something of his life. In a way, I suppose that's why I'm writing a book. Having muscular dystrophy doesn't make it easy, but it doesn't mean I can't do something positive with my life. I truly believe my book has the potential to help people dealing with medical challenges like mine.
