I gave you props for what you did, I think it's great and hope it will change the way people think. I wasn't trying to stir a pot or strike up a debate. I just simply said I don't believe EVERYTHING happens for a reason. I'm sorry y'all took it the wrong way.

Thats a tuff one, that was me at that age. My advice is just tell him like it is, the truth, what can happen, what he might have to live with the rest of his life. the most simple and hardest thing i deal with everyday is that i cant give the woman i love a huge bear hug. I will never be able to give her that, and she deserves it so much. I get to live with that for the rest of my life because of mistakes i have made in my life.

Lets makes sure you understand this, it doesnt bother me that my arm is gone, i have accepted that and moved on, but i cant give her what she deserves. I cant throw my niece and nephews around in the pool, i cant run on the playground with them. Its not the arm and leg missing that bothers me, its all the small stuff that i get to miss out on, the stuff i cant give now that bothers me. I wouldnt wish it on anyone in the world.

Again, If anyone would like for me to come speak at any kinda function or school, just let me know the details.


It just never seems to hit close to home until you meet someone that can tell you that is my life and im here to tell you you dont want this.

You're still Syvan's hero! She still asks about you and asks to see you. I hope Meaner can set up something with her son's school- I'll bring Syvan, also.

That's a good thing you're doing man. I'm glad to have met you too. You have a real sense of humor about the whole thing that makes me wonder if I could look at it the same way if something like that happened to me.

have you ever thought about going to a trackday at TWS (Texas World Speedway) to talk? I know a lot of street guys and race guys attend those days. But i think it would be a great lesson for the first time track guys to hear and hopefully take back some knowledge from you and the track days about risks on the streets,

Good work dude. I know it's hard to get the attention of high school kids because all they care about is getting out of class, but it looks like you had a kick- presentation that touched their hearts, and that's no easy task. Cheers and keep spreading the word.

Hey Dude,

Nice thing of you talking with the kids. Hopefully they all will get something out of that message.
Correct me if I'm wrong but, I think I've seen you around the Blinn Campus back in 07. Second floor Administration building. I had a Texas History Class up there.
