Ain’t no mountain high enough!

Dear Editor:

On the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I’d like to share a recent encounter. I was at the Maroon Bells Visitor Center (9,500 feet) and met a young man in a wheel chair who was born with no legs.

He told me he had wheeled himself from the bottom to the top of the road at Maroon Bells using only his arms! Next time you start to feel sorry for yourself, think of this young man who overcame not having legs and wheeled himself to the top of this high mountain with his arms and his will! “Ain’t no mountain high enough!”
