Fortitude

Standard

I never cease to be amazed by the effort people make to get out of their homes and get around.

We spotted this man in his hand-propelled wheelchair riding in what might be considered a bike lane.

There is another fairly senior gentleman that we spot every day walking down the street in front of our home.

He has a cane, is hunched over sideways, and has probably had a stroke.

Yet everyday he lurches that weak leg along, leans heavily on the cane, and by sheer willpower propels himself to wherever he is going for a “stroll” that day.

Every time we see him we are just blown away by his determination.

A role model for us all.
