    My Uncle David was in a trucking accident and lost use of his legs. He was horribly depressed for a while but he finally found his new purpose. He owns a bunch of canoes and kayaks and has events for special needs people now. He also goes to the triathlons and pulls out the swimmers who don't make it. Everyone needs to matter in someway and for some, they just have to work a little harder at it but I think the payoff must be so much greater than if it came easy. Great shot!

    My late father loved to fish but when he was working on the Great Lakes as a wheels man on the ship where he was employed he was only home in the winter months for 3 months of the year...Consequently, he went ice fishing....As a child growing up I didn't realize how fortunate we were to eat fresh trout at our disposal and the work that was involved to go ice fishing..Wonderful shot Chris, I apologize for rambling on.
