An Amazing Story of Hope to Motivate You!

As we continually search for inspiration in our lives it is important
to learn about the lives of others less fortunate than ourselves to
gain perspective. Leadership isn't just about "leading others", but
rather it is mostly about leading "ourselves".
 
Often times we see great leaders and want to follow them! We 
seldom know their story or experiences that have made them the
leader that they are. We just know that they have something that
we DON"T have and it makes us curious. 
 
I want to introduce you to Dartanyon Crockett and Leroy Sutton
as well their amazing story of friendship and overcoming obstacles.
 
 DL
 
You see Dartanyon is legally blind and Leroy lost both of his legs in a
childhood accident. That alone would make a great story, but that is only
the beginning. The boys learned to trust (not something they were good
at doing) and then befriend the ESPN Producer who was telling their story. 
What happens next no one could have predicted.
 
Watch their amazing story here. If you would like to learn more about these
young men please click here and if you would like to see the original ESPN
story that started it all just click here
