Blind Iowan Teen Goes Skydiving
Close your eyes and imagine for a minute that your vision would be forever dark.
Blindness doesn’t discriminate, and it could happen to anyone at anytime. It is also something that 18 year old Danny Grimes deals with every day. Danny is blind, but he doesn’t let it stop him from living life to it’s fullest.
Danny is a junior at Iowa West High School and decided to add skydiving to his resume!
He recently participated in a 10,000 ft. jump that had to be the most exhilarating experiences of his life, thanks to Skydive Iowa.
According to CBS2 News, the teen said “It’s not about skydiving, [people with vision impairments] just need to know that they can do anything. That nothing can stop them.”
So take a minute and close your eyes. And imagine what you’d like to accomplish in your life. Then, think of Danny Grimes…and take that leap of faith!
