I thought I’d take a moment to talk about the giving nature of people.  I was at a garage sale looking at two different camcorders, as I would like to upgrade to one with a better microphone.  I started talking to the man who was having the sale and asked him what he knew about his camcorders.  He said he was selling them for a friend and that he really knew nothing about them.  I explained my channel and why I wanted them.  He said, “Do you know..and then he gave me a man’s name.”  I had met this man on numerous occasions but don’t really know him, but of course, said yes.  This man was a teenager and jumped head first into a river, breaking his neck and was instantly paralyzed from the waist down.  He and his family own a rather large company and he still travels all over the world.  He’s absolutely amazing and has never let his physical limitations slow him down.

The friend who was selling the camcorders started packing them up and said, Mark wanted these to go to a good home, and I know he will be thrilled to know what you’ll be doing with them and gave me both camcorders.  I thanked him very much and said that I would write a note to Mark.  Once I figure out which one works well for me, I’ll find a way to pay it forward with not only the other camcorder, but mine as well.  I am always amazed by the generosity of strangers, and this is just one of many.   Since starting this YouTube channel, I’ve met so many wonderful generous sweet people and hope that I pay it forward, as I’ve been really blessed.
