Dick & Rick Hoyt

Before going to Boston I heard about the story of father and son duo Dick & Rick Hoyt. I wished I knew of them earlier because their story is about the love of a father for his son and never giving up. This reminds us how all of us are capable of been strong and pushing ourselves. Of course when it comes for the love of your child or a loved one that power can magnify times three. With great love their is great faith that anything is possible. 

Rick Hoyt was born with cerebral palsy and was told he would never be able to function well in society. His parents didn't agreed with Doctors so they took to themselves to raise him as any boy. Dick introduced Rick to sports and soon he found that his son would follow the games but also that he enjoyed it. Click on below link to video to learn more about him (story is 2 years old).

By the way this year he was at the Boston Marathon and though I didn't have the opportunity to see him cross the finish line my boyfriend did see him on the course. He told me that seeing them both brought him great inspiration and was in awe of their strength, passion and love. If you'd like to learn more about them check click here. Below is a clip from the most recent HBO interview he did.
