Inspirational person of the month – September 2010

Watch Arthur Boorman‘s amazing journey (filmed by his 19-year-old son Warren) as he sets a goal to walk again and to reclaim his life. An Army veteran who was hurt in the first Gulf War, Arthur suffered for 15 years with the effects of a botched surgery that left him unable to walk without the assistance of leg braces and canes. By February 2007, he had ballooned to 297 pounds and, by his own admission, was waiting to die. In looking for a yoga program to alleviate some of his constant pain he gained inspiration and strength to propel him towards his goal: to walk again! Watch here as Arthur vividly demonstrates that life is not about how many times you fall down, but about how many times you get up.
