We have just had Andy Reid and his wife stay with us for a few days. Andy Reid has served for 13 years with 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment. He is in rehabilitation after the severe injuries he received by an IED while serving in Afghanistan In October 2009. As a result of the explosion he lost both legs and his right arm.
Andy has the most positive outlook on life of anyone we have ever met. The way he lives his life to the full is inspirational, and his lovely wife Claire shares the same “lets do it” attitude. When you meet people with this kind of outlook it makes you realise just how negative we can be over such minor things.
Andy does inspirational talks to companies and if I was still in the corporate world I would have him talk tomorrow. Please see his site http://www.andyreid.org and support ABF The Soldiers Charity http://www.soldierscharity.org/.
