    senior citizen ensures 22 yr old graduates from college

    http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs...5155.html?vp=1 this is a remarkable story. only one comment: smith is obviously a quad, not paralyzed from waist down as reported. wonder why he is in a manual on campus? I mean, I pushed for 6 yrs, but smith looks like a c5 or so. anyway, great story. this is reality, not push girls, imo. so few get this help.

    Heh, the media almost always uses "paralyzed from the waist down", no matter what level you are. I would imaging that the manual chair was the best fit for Greene.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing this. I guess I missed this when it was originally posted and then ironically noticed it because someone spammed and pushed it back to the top.

    I am not ashamed to say I cried watching the video. I wish more people would take action when they see someone in need of help, but Mr. Greene really went above and beyond most. I would like to read an article like this every day of the week. It would restore my faith in humanity.
