The trouble with "inspiring" videos that feature people with disabilities is the implied assumption that people with disabilities are supposed to be inspiring. Most are ordinary folks who go about living their lives the best they can, like everyone else. Still, this video is worth watching as pastor and author Ed Dobson, who has lived with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) for over 10 years, has come to a place of acceptance and even hope. Anyone who lives with acquired disability has to find a way to incorporate the disability into their lives, or they find themselves filled with hopelessness and despair. Dobson talks about how God carried him toward hope and how God used a surprising instrument in his life to begin that journey toward hope.
