Father and Son!

[I came across this on markshea.blogspot.com.]

Dick Hoyt is a father who wins an Olympic gold medal from my heart.

His son Rick was born as a non-speaking, spastic quadriplegic person with cerebral palsy.

To watch a heartwarming short video about their shared athletic exploits, click on the following image.

Rick Hoyt, communicating through an electronic device, has said,
"I wish I could be an athlete.
But if I could have anything I wanted,
I'd ask my dad to sit down for a while.
Then I'd push him around."
