One-legged man bicycles his way out of bitterness…

An excellent human interest story from the LA Times about Felix Hackenberg, the one-legged bicyclist who is often seen cruising the hills of Griffith Park in LA.

The message Felix (a name which means “happiness” in Latin) gives is this:

“… he has let go of the despair that followed the loss of his leg.

‘There was a lot of apathy and grief going on those 12 years,’ he said.

‘I could be bitter at the guy for pulling out in front of me. But ultimately we’re all responsible for whatever happens to us.

Something I couldn’t agree with more.
