It is possible to smile and cry at the same time.

I was reading the daily humor letter I get and this was in a section entitled “Daily Kudos” which IM gonna directly Quote

Have a tissue ready both guys and gals! This is love at
it’s purest! Take a break and watch both of the video links.
The inspiration you’ll receive is the reward.

This love story began in Winchester, Mass., 43 years ago,
when Rick was strangled by the umbilical cord during birth,
leaving him brain-damaged and unable to control his limbs.

“He’ll be a vegetable the rest of his life,” Dick says doctors
told him and his wife, Judy, when Rick was nine months old,
“Put him in an institution.” But the Hoyts weren’t buying it.

In 2005, at ages 65 and 43, Dick and Rick finished their
24th Boston Marathon, in 5,083rd place out of more than
20,000 starters. Their best time? Two hours, 40 minutes in
1992 — only 35 minutes off the world record which happens
to be held by a guy who was not pushing another man in a
wheelchair. “No question about it,” Rick types.
“My dad is the Father of the Century.”
