Inspiration Meditation 1/20/17 By Adam Kaelin

What it's all about: This commercial shows a group of friends playing a game of basketball while in wheelchairs. After the game, we come to find out that only one player was in need of the wheelchair. This makes us realize that his friends played in the wheelchairs so as to put themselves on the same level as their handicapped friend. I also believe they did it so that he didn't feel different and so that they could put theirselves in his position to realize how hard it can be to play basketball from a wheelchair. They also did it so that they could all do something together as friends and he would not be left out.

Inspirational Aspect: I believe this commercial shows us all the value of going out of our ways to be a better friend. These guys didn't have to do this, but they wanted to because they wanted their wheelchair bound friend to be able to be active with them and have fun with his friends. If we do this for the people in our own lives, then we will build stronger friendships and bonds with one another. It's this kind of friendship that makes the world a better place.

Let us pray: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Lord, please help us to all be accepting and appreciative of all of our friends, and even those we don't consider friends. Help us to remember that no matter how one treats us, if we can be the type of friends like the guys in this video, then we are doing the right thing. Let us always do the right thing no matter the situation. For all this we pray, Amen. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
