On Wednesday morning Bacho came home from the gym. He told me how he had been running on the treadmill watching ESPN. A story came on. He watched the story and started to cry. He said he wiped his eyes and tried to pretend like he was wiping sweat from his brow.
But it was his tears.
Later that day I searched google to find the story. I watched it and I cried.

It's the story of Jake Olsen. Jake is a brave boy who faced his trials with courage and chose to see the world in a positive light.

I appreciate Jake and his strength.

Is this the little boy who lost his eye sight? Jason and I watched the ESPN story and we were both crying.
