I just saw this on Oprah today. It's so amazing the love this father has for his son. And it's amazing how articulate and intelligent Rick is when he is able to communicate with modern technology.<br><br><a href="http://www2.oprah.com/tows/slide/200510/20051020/slide_20051020_284_113.jhtml" target="_blank">http://www2.oprah.com/tows/slide/200..._284_113.jhtml</a>

I watched the full story on HBO (I think the show is called<br>
Real Sports). It touched my heart to no end. The bond<br>
between this Father and Son is breath taking.<br><br>
They didn't mention it on Oprah but when I watched the<br>
story Dick (the Father) had a small heart attack awhile back.<br>
The Doctors said that he was a ticking time bomb and if he<br>
hadn't have been in such good shape he wouldn't have<br>
made it. So threw the dreams of his son, his son saved<br>
his life.

Whenever I have moments of despair--people like this make me stop the pity party and buck up. I am grateful for the inspiration.<br>
And I am REALLY grateful for the inspiration of this family keeping their special needs at HOME where he belongs and not in an institution.<br>
Oh how I wish others would heed the call.
