Life has a way of handing us lemons. It is up to us to decide if we want to ignore the lemons or if we want to make lemonade.
Lt. Col. Kenneth Dwyer, student at U.S.A.C.W. in Carlisle, shows us that when faced with adversity, he made lemonade.
Injured in Iraq while serving our country, Lt. Col. Dwyer was injured. It was important to him to overcome the obstacles so that he could go back to doing what he loved. That was playing baseball with his son.
Lt. Col. Dwyer's son plays on the JV Baseball team at Carlisle Area High School. The Lt. Col. was recognized recently at the "Military Appreciation" day in Carlisle.
Watch this video, that originally aired on the MLB Network, to see how Lt. Col. Dwyer chose to overcome. He made some lemonade out of the lemons he was handed. We can all learn a thing or two from his perseverance.
Thank you, Lt. Col. Dwyer for your service and for showing us that anything is possible if we are committed to it.
“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”
