Sunday Inspiration: An American Hero

There are so many inspiring people all around us.

Dale Beatty was serving in the National Guard in Northern Iraq when his vehicle hit a roadside mine.  He returned to the US after both of his legs were amputated, and yet he kept a positive attitude about his life.

Following his recovery his church and community built a handicapped-accessible home for him to live in. Dale was so moved by their generosity that he decided to “pay it forward” by building 30 homes for disabled veterans.

Read Dale’s whole story here for more inspiration.

And don’t forget to give thanks for and celebrate the heroes in your life.
