Episode Info:

Richard Pimentel is one of the most incredible and inspiring humans we have ever met. It is no surprise there is a movie based on his life. He was abandoned at birth, raised in poverty, a volunteer for a suicide mission in Vietnam, blown up during the celebration for him surviving the suicide mission, and then comes home and starts helping other disabled vets get employment and eventually helps co-write the Americans With Disabilities Act. He is a walking story of the power of resilience and what someone can do when they believe in themselves. Do not miss this episode and make sure to listen to the very end!
