“I GOT IT”…Three Simple Words Speak Volumes

I got it”three simple words that speak volumes.  Watch and become inspired by the sheer determination, and zest for life this exceptional two year old boy demonstrates.

His name is Kayden Kinckle, and I have to admit every time I watch this video I am in awe of this amazing little boy. With each step and chant of three simple words…I got it, you can feel and hear his determination and zest for life. To be so young, yet so inspiring in the face of adversity is magnificent.

“I GOT IT” Attitude…

Kayden was obviously born with an I Got It” attitude,  along with a rare birth defect that caused him to become a double amputee at a very young age.  He has undergone numerous surgeries in his short life, with the most recent in January 2014 to remove his right foot and left leg due to an amI Got It Attitudeniotic band being wrapped around both legs while still developing in the womb.  This hasn’t stopped Kayden’s spirit from shining bright though, as this little man took his first steps using prosthetics just six months later.

I cannot impress upon you enough the importance of Kayden’s attitude.  His strength and courage to continue moving forward (both literally and physically), no matter what the circumstances says a lot about this little boys character.  He is also providing much needed emotional support for his family; especially his mother without evening being aware of this special gift.

Declaration of Independence

Declaration of Independence – Listen and Reflect

As we celebrate the 4th of July, also known as Independence Day in the United States of America, I thought it only fitting to share this video of the Declaration of Independence.

While listening to these words it occurred to me this document could have been written during present times. In fact, many events that are taking place today seem to mimic those that took place so many years ago as people continue to fight for their rights.

Second Sentence In Declaration of Independence Is Powerful

Perhaps one of the most powerful and standout statements in the Declaration of Independence is found in the second sentence, and reads as follows:

Declaration of Independence


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.


When these words were written in 1776, I feel certain the intent was to ensure a brighter future for everyone … without exclusion; but as the years have passed much has changed … and definitely not all for the better.

My hope is that some  day  soon we wake up as a nation, remember why the Declaration of Independence was written … and join forces in an effort to turn things around. After all, our founding fathers put everything they had on the line to ensure this would be the greatest nation on earth.
