My family has a very close friend named Alex Wannamaker who was born with a severely damaged central nervous system This birth defect has left him somewhat paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair Alex was limited to doing basic daily activities with the help of others Alex is able to take educational classes from home using his voice-activated computer He sometimes asks me to type his homework to-date he is an A student I have become his best friend and I have enjoyed talking to him on many different subjects One day Alex asked me to help him with flying a kite I must have looked somewhat surprised and startled with this simple request because kite flying is one of those things I take for granted So I asked him why To my chagrin he replied imagination is the highest kite one can fly Alex added There is no limit to your imagination or how high you fly your kite As long as there is string you can fly a kite Kites like imagination can come in different sizes and shapes With imagination you can get the soaring feeling of flying a kite in the sky I bought a box crate kite a Japanese fighting kite and a special Disney character kite and lots of string The day I took Alex to the park was bright and clear not a cloud in the sky I put the Disney kite together first and got it soaring into the sky then tied the string to his wheelchair I saw a small smile on Alexs face Next I had a little difficulty putting the box crate kite together and getting it to fly because Ive never flown this type of kite It was a challenge for me but I got it up Again I tied the string to his wheelchair and I saw Alexs smile get bigger
