Passing this along courtesy of DDOON, from another SparkTeam...some Independence Day inspiration!:

I received this in email. It is a VERY powerful message. You can use this on your teams if you'd like:

This is the most amazing story you will ever be a part of. The next time YOU think that you just CANíT ___, remember THIS story and attached video.
A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'
The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'.
They went on to complete the marathon together.
Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.
One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes'.
For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.
Father and son went on to complete the race together.
Here's video footage of the duo - I hope it touches you like it did me:
