Talk about a man's indefatigable spirit not just to survive but to to thrive in life! I can't help but recall these words while watching him:
"I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work 15 and 16 hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottom of his feet, a man... who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example." (Mario Cuomo, 52nd Gov of New York)
Amazing! Believe me when I say that I'll never look at coconuts the same way ever again!
I'll never look at coconuts the same way again!
