Some people's excuse is, their parents (and possibly communities as well) suck, and opportunities like that don't just happen to come along for them. Sadly.

He's very lucky, as well as very strong (in more than one way).

But sure, I agree for the most part. And that was a very cool video. Thanks for posting it. :)

LOVED IT! The father is just as much a superman as the son for letting him do his thing and encouraging him. Also for buying a gym for his son to teach others. Best investment his father could make.

Amazing, the child wanted to do the sport but the father was judged negatively for putting him in that position; yeah, let's keep the kid down because society should decide how much or what you are permitted to do if you're placed in a set category by society.

amazed! it was sad yet im proud of him when he said he didnt want to be called garret because he has down syndrom and he is dead to me, made it seem like he is not letting "garret with downs" hold him back from what his dreams are. no excuses! and how when he is asked "how does downs effect you", and he replys "it does not". Man and there are so many motivational parts in this vid. great!!!
