Just watch the whole video...
I am just so proud of this young man

This young man may have lost the foot race.... but in my book.. he places first in the human race.

Thank you for posting this, my wife & I will be losing our home shortly due to foreclosure so times they are tough. This brings what we are currently going through into sharp reality that it's just a ripple in the big pond of life.

Thank you!

Can you watch this without shedding a tear?........I couldn't.

That young man (Matt) deserves a huge gold star, or a trophy, taller then he is.

This story reminds me of President Theodore Roosevelt's line...." the man we should praise is the man who is out there fighting the big battles, even if these battles end in defeat. ..that glory and honor comes to those who spend themselves in a worthy cause."
