Hi All,

I had the pleasure of being one of the lucky ones to meet with Stephen Hawking, plus got to hear him speak at his "Space & Time Warps" lecture yesterday. Let me tell you, I'm amazed at what he can do and what he's accomplished, in spite of his challenge with ALS. He's such a great role-model and a very inspirational person. I don't know what else to say, except that Dr. Hawking left me speechless... See how special we all are to be part of DO-IT and get wonderful opportunities like this? After all, these things don't happen everyday.

Thanks DO-IT!
