This came up on my Twitter feed from Owen Jones. When I realised what it was I couldn't make up my mind whether or not to watch it. I had heard a little of Gordon, I knew that he had been diagnosed with MND, but I'd never seen him on screen or heard him talk. A part of me felt that I didn't want to. I didn't want to be sad for him or to feel sorry for him.
However, in the end I decided to play it...and I'm glad I did.
He's not the kind of guy you feel sorry for. He's the kind of guy you admire. He's been dealt a rotten hand but my goodness is he making it work for him and perhaps more importantly, for society.
I came away inspired and yes, although I was sad, I was also uplifted by his courage and determination... and somewhat ashamed of how little I make of my life by comparison.
I thought it would be good to share it with you.
