I think that DJ Gregory and Pat Furlong are both inspirational in their own ways. Both of them would not take no for an answer, and they were the ones who inspired others around them not to give up as well. It was Furlongs love for her sons Patrick and Christopher that made her continue her journey to get them the right help.Even if she did make people close to her mad. It was Gregory's will to succeed that made him the person he became today. They both inspired me. Gregory inspired the entire PGA community, as well as, many other people who saw his accomplishment. To walk 0ver 900 miles with his disability was truly inspirational. I think that having a disability is something that can make a person stronger.
I myself have a disability. Although nothing compared to what the Furlongs or Gregory went through. I was Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and have had constant struggle to try and overcome my memories from Iraq, as well as, my temper when I get frustrated. I decided that I was not going to use PTSD as an excuse to be mean, or demand sympathy. I instead try to help other Veterans who want to talk about their problems and struggles. I am going to use my disability as a tool to help, rather than a crutch to complain.
