Oh, the people you will meet

Roa and I met a family at the Courage Center. A father and son "team". Mike is 24 and had a tramatic brain injury after a car accident. His father, Dave, was driving home from the Cities to Hudson when they had an accident and roll over. Mike was 18 years old at the time. A senior in high school. They have been coming to Courage since then and Mike is relearning to walk, talk, etc. Mike loves Roa and smiles so big when he sees him in the pool. He gives Roa a fist bump every time! Roa just smiles. Mike has a tatoo on his back... INVINCIBLE, it reads. I am honored to be in the presence of both Mike and Roa. They are invincible. They will succeed. They are teaching me how to live my life.

    I have been reading the posts the last few days and have been smiling in joy and tearing up with emotion. You are doing an awesome job of keeping track of Roa's journey. Someday I hope you publish all this in a book!
