I've been feeling a little down lately, and I'm not sure why. Nothing's going wrong in my life - got my health, my family and friends are doing well, my job is relatively secure.

"When Kyle Maynard speaks of accomplishment, you listen. The term hero is overused in sports, but this is the real deal.

Kyle is 23 years old. He wrote a book a few years back called "No Excuses", of which I have a copy. I saw him on Oprah.
