Eddie Garcia Shares His Inspiring Story on FreshStart Radio
"Despite having just lost my hands and feet, I have done amazing things since leaving the hospital. I have run marathons and 5Ks, successfully coached youth basketball and soccer, and I was named the National Youth Coach of the Years by NAYS.org. I am also a motivational speaker at schools in my home state of Nevada where I have been a school teacher and administrator. My hope is to inspire others. I always tell people,
"If I can do it, so can you".
I also visit patients at the hospital where I was being treated at." - Eddie Garcia

On this one I describe the first song after my intro on my first album, 253.
The name of the song is Round Here. The concept of the song is to give the listener a fair warning about the area, the people in the area and the activities.
It is hard core hip hop with heavy 808 bass.
After that we go into some news about police treating a double amputee the best they know how.
After that we have a little read about child rape.
It's the Wine Cellar.
This is a tough episode.

Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (/p?s't?ri?s/; born 22 November 1986) is a South African sprint runner. Although both of Pistorius' legs were amputated below the knee when he was 11 months old, he competes in events for single below-knee amputees and for able-bodied athletes. At the 2011 World Championships in Athletics, Pistorius became the first amputee to win an able-bodied world track medal. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Pistorius became the first double leg amputee to participate in the Olympics when he entered the men's 400 metres and 4 × 400 metres relay races. At the 2012 Summer Paralympics, Pistorius won gold medals in the men's 400 metre race and in the 4 × 100 metres relay, setting world records in both events. He also took a silver in the 200 metres race, having set a world record in the semifinal.
In the early morning of Thursday, 14 February 2013, Pistorius' girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was shot and killed at Pistorius' Pretoria home.

Madison Star Moon interviews independent researcher and activist Peekay22. Peekay22 also known as Peter presents the truth in a humerous way. He has exposed many false flag operations through his youtube channel. He has also exposed chemtrails and the Qantas shills that cover them up. I am a personal fan of all of Peter's work.

Larry Chloupek ran the Boston Marathon this year. Quite a feat for almost anyone who does it. But more so for Larry. Most people have two legs to run with. Larry has only one. His leg was amputated at the hip when he was 7, due to cancer. Now, at 54, Larry is an athlete with 8% body fat who runs an 11 minute mile. And he has inspired his wife, Jenn, and a former NFL football player to run his first marathon. Larry is a marathon man like no other. Join Larry and Jenn as I interview them for what promises to be an inspiring hour.
