    I saw this ad one time in 2001 - and it haunted me ever since. I found it at last. It's one of the most powerful things I've seen on television. Helps put everything into ultra clear perspective. Who am I to complain or harbor self-pity. This guy - Dan Keplinger - does more before 9AM than I do in a week - and you can see what he struggles against. And the last phrase - I am unbelievably lucky - says it all. He is. We are. We're alive and capable of self expression. Nothing more powerful. We all have this gift - but so few - so very few understand it. God Bless Dan Keplinger.
