Sometimes Lessons Don't Come From The Most Fleet A Foot

((HT:))

We all were in high school at some point in our lives... and the HQ says this as someone who is well past that point...

We all remember trying out for something- doesn't matter if we're talking stage, sports, or senate. In that process, we all remember that one person that we thought and KNEW didn't belong in the race we were a part of at the time. There's NO WAY this person was going to be a part of what you were doing...

No...

But, when you look back at what happened, there was a valuable lesson that was learned at the time. Lessons about perseverance and not letting anything get in the way of you accomplishing a goal you have set for yourself.

For our next lesson in that, we go to Edmonton and an elementary school relay race involving 5th grader Lucas Sopel. Sopel tried out for his school's track team as he fights with cerebral palsy and moves with the aide of a walker. He was given the anchor leg to finish the race for his team and here's what has happened since:

Don't ever tell someone what they can and can't do...

You just might be surprised one day with what you see...
