Brian Bogert was involved in a life-threatening accident at age 7 that tore off one of his arms. He says that while in the ICU, once the trauma had passed and his life was no longer at risk, he learned his first lesson with real meaning for him. At first he wondered why this had happened to him, but when he realized that there were people with terminally ill children, perspective came to him. So the lesson he learned was not to get hooked on the things that happened to him but to learn to move forward and see what he can do with what he has experienced to help other people through his life story.
