    One of my favorite and most inspiring speeches from a truly great human being. It really makes you feel more grateful about your life. I hope it brightens up someones day. :)

    RIP Jimmy V

    I remember that

    :wtc:

    I know, I gotta go, I gotta go, and I got one last thing and I said it before, and I'm gonna say it again: Cancer can take away all my physical ability. It cannot touch my mind; it cannot touch my heart; and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever.

    Reminds me how my dad used to talk to me as a kid when he had cancer. The letter he left me when he died was so much like this. I had never seen that before it made me cry hardcore :wtc: :wtc:
