The Fastest Blind Man in the World

There’s a new documentary coming out about “the fastest blind man in the world.” The film titled Unteathered tells about David Brown who lost his sight by the age of 13 due to Kawasaki disease.

You can read more about this extraordinary athlete, trust, and brotherhood in this article from the Good News Network. Be sure to take a look below at the trailer for Unteathered.

  1. Another positive and uplifting post, JoAnna. I especially like the Facebook story. Not everything about growing old is bad! <2

  2. Thank you JoAnna. I love the story about the blind runner and his training partner.

  3. All great and uplifting news of the goodness within the human spirit to save another life, to give thanks to those who help us along the way to success, and to give sight and hope to those who cannot see. The Old Man in the Facebook post puts it all into perspective. Thanks, JoAnna 🙂

  4. Segal has top spot. The truckers were also most worthy

  5. Sharing good news is such a lovely idea – thank you
