Kyle Maynard -- a True Inspiration!

I just saw a story on Kyle Maynard (represented by WashingtonSpeakersBureau) on tonight's 20/20 report, "Up From Nothing." (I didn't see the rest of the show -- only the part that covered Kyle.)

What an inspirational young man! (He recently turned 20.)

"No Excuses" -- written by Kyle Maynard

His book is described as: The True Story of a Congenital Amputee Who Became a Champion in Wrestling and in Life

(Do go to his official website -- linked above -- and check him out!)

So many people are ready every day to throw in the towel for one reason or another. They should take a page (literally!) out of Kyle's book! (Which I'd really like to read...)
