If you can’t sing, be the song… Al’s story is a song. When it begins, the tempo is happy, strong and busy. Al is a physically active and mentally alert hot tar roofer. A few days before his 19th birthday, his Yamaha 650 Special crashes into a truck that ran a stop sign. Life’s tempo changes when Al loses the use of the left side of his previously strong body. His vocal chords fuse together during his month long coma, requiring years of therapy to replace his monotone speech with something understandable and easier on the ear. "I may not be an ordained pastor, but I a a Christian guy who's been delivered from the valley of the shadow of death and set free to walk, with a cane, to laugh and to love." "God’s used my 30+ years of rehab to teach me about winners, sweet spots and confident freedom. God's taught me that: - Winners live in that sweet spot because they know “It’s not all about them.” - Winners live in that sweet spot because they ”Care about others.” - Winners live in that sweet spot because they “Know how to love and be loved.” - Winners live in that sweet spot because they "Treat others like they're also Winners. - Winners smile because their negativity has been replaced by a happy, joyous freedom. - God hasn’t brought me this far to drop me now. These realizations and James 1:2-4 and 2:14 are why my story is appropriately called: Sing Anyway.
