My wife encouraged me to watch this video. It truly exemplifies the “NeverQuitEver” type of attitude. I want to share it with you. I’m sure someone went on to win the race and maybe a Gold medal, but that feat was diminished by the strength and character of one man.

Inspiring…truly inspiring. The determination of a young man not to quit when every essence of his being is telling him to do just that. (I Love It) I also love the courage of his father, to help his son through an obviously horrendous situation. I’m so glad that security guy didn’t give his father too much trouble, because it looks like Dad would have laid him out.

Both of them showed exemplary character in the face of adversity. Let me say that once again…both of them showed exemplary character in the face of adversity. I hope you catch the primary word: adversity. As terrible as I can imagine how it felt to be in the Olympics, favored to win, and have it all come crashing down right before your eyes, what he shared with us all was a blessing. I could almost feel his physical as well as emotional pain as he was going around the track, so visceral as it was. What was shown in the end? Determination Personified. The will to never quit no matter how difficult the situation. He may not have been able to finish in the way that he trained so hard for, but he never quit. He showed courage and in that he honored each and every athlete competing and offered all of us that will see he feat a true gift.

Always Remember…You don’t have permission to Quit.
