What ever you do, please make sure you take the time read this amazing article from mi4ssoulian.com - a truly inspirational piece about a boy named Dylan Helms and 16-year-old Michael Graef at the Missoula Taekwondo Center in Montana.
It is stories like this one here - describing the remarkable bond between a boy with a crippling disease (Friedreich's ataxia) and a young man dedicated to help him out at the kids taekwondo classes - which reinforces my belief in the spirit and kindness of mankind as well as the true power and potential of martial arts.
If a story like this - using a term like "a miracle of friendship" - doesn't melt your heart then I truly wonder what will...
There are many interpretations of the "true meaning" of martial arts or budo. The one described here should, in my opinion, rank at the very top.
