When I saw this video and the post, Healthy, Wealthy and Wise, on my friend and fellow author, Rebecca Bryan's blog, I knew I had to share it. The kid in this video is amazing.
I don't know a lot of of Junior High students who would be brave enough to dance in front of all their classmates like this, but Gabe does it. He touches everyone in the room with his smile and his enthusiasm for life.
Rebecca puts it this way:
And Gabe's face! Oh if I could put it in a bottle and bring it out whenever I am down or feeling sorry for myself. His face radiated pure,simple joy.
The joy of dancing.The joy of moving your body.
The joy of living!
