Tommy is a skateboarder, drummer, and journalism student at Northwestern University (where I study). And he is blind. I have never felt more inspired by someone. Seeing him drumming in a talent show, playing in a band, joining a frat, skateboarding, and much more has made me wonder whether any of us are truly living up to our potential. I wish I were as fearless as Tommy, that I would take risks and feel the power of them as my heart soars.
I'll be scoping the trains again soon. Bear with me. It's been a busy few weeks.
