Welcome to the Disability Awesome segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Disability Awesome will feature a person or persons with mental and / or physical disabilities who are doing awesome and great things! As editor / publisher Nathan Young has an disability (Autism), we here at Geek Alabama love it when others when disabilities do great things!
In this heartwarming video, YouTube channel Mow It Wells shares their experience of knocking on a random person’s door because their lawn was severely overgrown. Little did I know, the man who answered the door was disabled and couldn’t believe that I was willing to mow his lawn for free. The lawn was a staggering three feet tall in some places, the flower beds were covered in weeds, and the fence line was being overtaken by brush.
I decided to take on the challenge and began by trimming everything in the front yard, followed by tackling the overgrown edges, and finally mowing the lawn. However, the real work awaited me in the backyard. I spent over three hours cleaning off the fence, and then had to mow the lawn four times to restore its beauty.
When I finished, I shared the good news with the gentleman, and he was incredibly pleased and grateful for the transformation. A few days later, he even reached out via email to thank me again and expressed his intention to pay it forward. It’s moments like these that remind us of the power of a simple act of kindness and how it can inspire others to “Be The Change” in their own lives.
Join me in this uplifting video as we witness the remarkable before-and-after transformation of this neglected yard, and let’s spread positivity and inspire others to make a difference in their communities. Together, we can create a ripple effect of kindness and compassion.
