Richie Parker is a chassis and body component designer (read: engineer) for Hendrick Motorsports, currently the most successful team in NASCAR now and for all time.
You might notice during the clip that he was hired as an intern for ten months, and he has been employed with them for eight years now. While I'm sure the HR and publicity departments at Hendrick and at NASCAR look at Richie as a double bonus (black and severely handicapped), I can also assure you that he would not be there if he wasn't good.* Plus, he's been there eight years, and we're just now hearing about him?
I am just as guilty for whining about my health situation and the complications as anyone else out there. I am unable to do many of the things that were stupid easy many moons ago.
However, I have all the limbs and digits that God saw fit to equip most of us at birth. Kinda puts it all in perspective, no?
