“Life’s just so amazing to me”
Every human being on earth has obstacles to overcome, and this young man is no different, except for the fact that his passion for life and his resilience have allowed him to overcome his challenges and, unlike most today, actually accomplish his goals.
Some are blessed to enter this life wanting for nothing and with every advantage available to them. However, some, like Colin Clarke, were given challenges right out of the gate that many will never fully understand. Colin was born with down syndrome, which for some, completely dictate the direction of their life. Colin is not one of those men. He chose to meet his hardships head on and not allow them to keep him from accomplishing his goals. He did not allow anyone to tell him that his ambition of being a professional body builder was impossible.
The story of how Colin became a body builder and the man who took him under his wing, is one of compassion and perseverance. This is a story that should inspire all go out and strive to reach their dreams; to no longer allow the world or anyone else to say what can and cannot be done. Colin should inspire all to fight for their own version of happiness.
Thank you Colin, you have a passion for life that is truly inspiring.
