We are all told where to sit. How to behave. When to move.
There will always be someone or something trying to keep you safe and in the right spot.
The only problem with that is someone else doesn’t always know what is inside of you.
Let this guy, Bobby Guardino, be the inspiration for you to get up, walk to your dreams, and just jump.

“Born with cerebral palsy, Guardino has used a wheelchair most of his life and had neck surgery last fall.

Last year he watched the sold-out Chicago music festival, Lollapalooza, from the handicapped platform. But this time he was determined to be part of the crowd and take in the sets with the throngs of other fans. “I see people crowd-surf all the time, but never nobody in a chair,” Guardino said. “At first my other friends said, ‘No, that’s not a good idea,’ but I only get to live once, so I said, ‘Let’s go.’”

Get off the platform and rise above the crowd today…
It’s better that way.

    There’s a quote from Bob Goff in RELEVANT magazine last year where he talks about praying for a guy at a conference where he was speaking. Instead of just asking everybody to lay their hands on him, Bob said, “Let’s crowd surf this guy!” So all these people at this Christian conference crowd-surfed this guy while Bob prayed over him. The description of this event evoked a pretty powerful image in my mind as I read the article.

    The picture above reminded me of that Bob Goff quote. I realize that Lollapalooza isn’t exactly the Creation Festival, but it looks like some healing happened that day.

    I love people. We love to be surprised by awesomeness. Thanks for reminding us to bring the awesomeness today, Los.

    Yes, “Get off the platform and rise above the crowd today…” and then watch several hundred other people around you whip out there cameras and take pictures of you doing exactly what they wish they could be doing.

    I always wanted to do this, but that was when I was younger! Hat’s off to this guy, a moment he will never forget!
