little lesson on john

yo, so i recently happened upon this really inspiring story. about a skateboarder named john cardiel.
basically john was a walking living breathing legend, and still is. i watched some clips of him and hell yes he does stuff i've only seen done in video games... i'm not exaggerating at all this guy is no joke.
this is him:

basically a little more then a year ago john was involved in an accident which made him paralyzed from the waist down.
doctors told him he'd never walk none the less skate again. flash forward to today. john has proved the doctors wrong and is walking and skating not back to 100% but hes not slowing down.


i was just so impressed by his resilience. i mean who has the balls to get up from being paralyzed and say yea thats your opinion this is mine and go ride a freaking skateboard... i don't know what i would do if i was faced with something like that in my life. but i'd hope to be like this guy
