World’s Most Inspiring Story – Dick and Rick Hoyt

Video CameraThis is quite possibly the most inspirational and touching thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s the story of Dick and Rick Hoyt, and words don’t do it justice so just watch the video.

And guys… don’t watch this around anyone you don’t want to see you weep. Trust me. And by the way, stop making excuses for not doing anything with your life!

NBC Today’s Heroes Special

    FYI…the first link to the “A Tribute to Team Hoyt” video is dead.

    The second video is definitely very touching…I’ve seen some footage before on this. Shows how much love for his son he has…wish everyone was that lucky – the world would be a better place.

    Nice post. I dissagree with Dan.

    keep em coming.

    Thanks for letting me know about the issue! I’ve updated the post a bit and replaced the video, so don’t miss it because I think it’s better than the first one. (And no religious overtones to offend anyone.)

    I also like the Free Hugs Campaign video very much (as do the other 17 million people who’ve seen it apparently). And I don’t mean to take anything away from it, but I personally feel more inspired by Team Hoyt because these are people who were given every possible excuse to fail, but simply refused to do so.

    Take care,

    PS: The link for part two is now broken.
