An incredible new video shows one man’s miraculous journey after being paralyzed


One year down💪💪💪 www.youtube.com


A year ago, Brian Kidwell suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. He faced a situation that could easily break the spirits of even the strongest person.

Catastrophic injuries not only take an impossible toll on the body, but Kidwell and his family turned to GoFundMe to help raise funds to pay for his expensive medical bills.

But with even a slight chance to turn the corner, Kidwell stayed the course with the help of his girlfriend, family and friends. Over the course of the next 12 months he began the slow, painful and challenging journey back from his injury.

A year later, Kidwell was walking and even married his girlfriend. And it turned out she had a gift of her own: She had been quietly documenting his recovery process which she turned into an unbelievably inspiring 6 minute video. Writing on his YouTube page, Kidwell explained:

Last year I suffered a serious spinal cord injury which left me paralyzed from the neck down. Yesterday was my one year anniversary. My wife surprised me with this video: 'One year ago today, I almost lost you. You got a second chance at life. Here's my gift to you'

When the COVID-19 pandemic socially distanced the world and pushed off the 2020 Olympics, we knew the games weren't going to be the same. The fact that they're even happening this year is a miracle, but without spectators and the usual hustle and bustle surrounding the events, it definitely feels different.

But it's not just the games themselves that have changed. The coverage of the Olympics has changed as well, including the unexpected addition of un-expert, uncensored commentary from comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Snoop Dogg on NBC's Peacock.

In the topsy-turvy world we're currently living in, it's both a refreshing and hilarious addition to the Olympic lineup.
