Eleven-year-old Henry Seiler was an energetic kid and an athlete who excelled in wrestling. But his life changed drastically one spring day in 1975 when he climbed on the back of a friend's motorcycle and went for a spin. Minutes later, Henry was lying in a crumpled heap. Rushed to the hospital in nearby Des Moines, Iowa, he spent the next forty-five days in a coma. After suffering a traumatic brain injury, Henry wasn't expected to live. But he did, and today, as an adult he explains his philosophy. “It is all about taking life as it comes to you; working through every day just as if it were like any other ordinary day.” Henry employed the same strong-willed determination in life as he did with developing his wrestling skills, using it to overcome his physical challenges.
