We have so many things at our finger tips now that make our lives so much easier. And not only make our lives easier, but make our quality of life so much better. I mean, my first wheelchair that I got, 55 pounds to move around in. You know, it was just a mammoth of a tank built out of this heavy chrome and so forth to push that in. Now we push around with wheelchairs that are made out of aluminum or titanium that weigh 16 pounds-18 pounds. The first wheelchair growing up as a kid, you know, when I started driving, just to lift that up and throw it into the car was like unbelievable. Now, in this day and age, you pick your wheelchair up, and if you don't throw it right, you'll throw it right outside of the window on the passenger side. I take advantage of technology, and it's only getting better.
