Never. Give. Up.

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Kevin Hillery makes his way on stage to receive his diploma during the 2012 graduation ceremony at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., May 29, 2012. Despite an accident in April that left him paralyzed, Hillery graduated from the academy.

That’s all I know about Hillery.  I look at his face, the work and determination, and the fact that he’s going up that ramp on his own, no one is his helper-pusher.  A steep ramp is the only slack he gets.  And I can see that he will Never. Give. Up. until he gets where he NEEDS to go.  And I have to ask myself:  Do I know how he feels?
