My Choice

"I just want to let people out there (that have a disability) know...they have a choice to make - to give up, or take the disability and continue on with their lives because they can. If I can work on cars, run my shop, drive cars... then there are things they can do as well, if they really choose to do it." - Larry Woody

Try It

"After my accident, I had to learn how to work on cars without sight, type by touch, use a computer that had a screen reader on it, rely on other people to help me. It was a major adjustment; learning to live life all over again.

My attitude is, if there is something you want to try and do with a disability you better try it, because you'll never know unless you try it." - Larry Woody
