      hey reid hope all is well. i'm really loving the documentary idea, sounds like an incredible and worthwhile experience. i went to prague last semester, so take it from me, studying abroad is amazing.

Your courage and determination bring tears to my eyes and my heart swells for you!! I always knew you would become a leader someday...but then you have always been a leader.

      You are such an inspiration and I'm so excited for other people to see who you truly are and what you are made of. Mom, Dad, Becky, and I knew you would make your mark one day. Don't think all of this means Becky and I will stop bashing on you now though :).

      Like you once said, "Struggle is inevitable yet temporary for those who chose to overcome it".

      Love you,
      Sam

      Reid,
      19 years ago and right out of college I began my teaching career with the Bethel Public Schools in their preschool program. I had the fortunate opportunity to have you in my first class. I think back to those days-not so long ago-and I see you with your bandana and your engaging and constant smile. I can't tell you how much you taught me; not only as a teacher but as a student. Although physical activities and mobility were often more tricky for you than your classmates, you were ALWAYS determined to not only meet the challenge-but exceed it. I can tell this attitude has stayed with you! I was so proud to read about you at your graduation from high school and all the success you found there. It is truly amazing to see how strong you are-you take any challenge and turn it into something positive. Maybe the lesson here is that you were meant to do more than just study abroad-maybe you are meant to help “expand the world” for others with mobility challenges. My wish for you is to continue to do what you are doing. You are a very special young man who is a great role model for others. You have done this teacher proud! Congratulations.
      All My Best-Mary Kirrane Worster
