There are many stories I have come across about hope and perseverance. But nothing has touched me quite like this story of a man with polio, who lives in Siguatepeque, Honduras, that has spent over 50 years building a helicopter from scrap with hopes of being able to fly it one day.
This short documentary by Tyler Bastian, Trevor Hill, Tim Skousen and Cameron Trejo is called “Everything is Incredible” and well, it’s pretty freaking incredible. It’s about a man named Agustín from Honduras who can’t walk, lives in poverty yet still wants to fulfill a dream: to fly. He spends his days making a helicopter from trash.
Agustín was diagnosed with polio early on in his life so he’s been unable to walk for most of his life. You should watch the video, just to see one man’s dedication in a seemingly hopeless cause.
The video documentary is beautifully shot and is about nine minutes long but it is totally worth your time to witness the endeavor of Agustín’s determination, despite the hardship and the cynicism surrounding his dream.
Agustín, you my friend, are a hero in my book! Thank you for showing us that we should NEVER give up on our dreams!
