Chorus has just ended and I am so excited about going to woodshop that I don't see these chairs in my way. Then suddenly, I trip over them and go flying and land on the ground unconscious. My breath is knocked out of me. It aches and hurts just to move, walk or get up. Micah says, 'Ben!' with lots of worry in his voice. He comes over to me and asks me if I am okay. I tell him I will be okay. Then Micah and some other people come over to me and pick me up and carry me by my shoulders. For a while they are kind of like my legs. I try walking with them still holding me, but I bump into walls. My knees and legs wobble and shake, plus I am very pale. They help me up staircases and hallways into the nurse's office. Another student, Jacob, gets the door for me. Micah explains what has happened to the nurse. She says, 'Thank you Micah.' And then I thank him too for helping me up the stairs. That's why my hero is Micah.

I Can and so can you. If I had ever let myself think I could not recover from crushing my head I do not think I would have recovered as much as I have. Attitude is everything.

I am a counselor in high school. This story will help me help my students focus on the "real deal" instead of the popular notions that abound these days!

I always look for an inspirational note that goes rolled, tied with ribbon, and into a basket for all women paddlers at our dragonboat festival in August. This is it!

Absolutely beautiful, it reminds me of myself saying "I Can't". I'm going to learn it myself.

Being committed to something helps you in many ways. It is a personal achievement and makes you feel better about yourself when you achieve it. Being confident and sticking to something makes a huge difference in your life and makes it easier to accomplish things.

why don't you try to do what you think you can't do?
