    Default I Survived and Thrive!! A nearly-fatal motorcycle accident. Live DOES go on!!

    I was in a near-fatal motorcycle accident in April 2013 which put me permanently in a wheelchair. (It has 6 wheels - I call it my "double-trike"). For whatever reason, I have been able to move forward with my life with good cheer. I know others of you have had similarly life-changing events in their live. I hope I can provide some uplifting input.

    Several months ago I was put in contact with a university journalism student who needed to do a documentary video for her senior project. She and I had a similar goal - to make a video that would be inspirational and uplifting. I thought she succeeded extremely well.

    There are references in the video to my faith. I hope the references are not any any way off-putting. Instead, I hope they help you connect with whatever anchor you use to ground yourself in this turbulent world.

    Feel free to share this video with anyone you know who might find it uplifting. Here is a link to the video:

    I know Gene both from before and after. This would have put anybody else in a vegetative state but not Gene. His Dedication both to his healing and his faith is an inspiration to us all. Keep on keeping on Gene, we are with you.
