I really like his outlook and hope that he continues to keep that positive mental attitude throughout his life. It will serve him well. This kid knows what perseverance is all about.
What move did the other kid do that would cause so much damage?
That story is inspiring. I agree with Gopher, this kid has a great attitude, and he's going to be a great success in life. I always tell my kids to surround yourself with honest, positive influences in your life, and you'll be a rich person (not monetarily speaking) and this is the very type of person I envision when I make that statement.
God bless this young man.
