Inky’s words have resonated all over the world— “The one thing we all have in common  is that we will encounter adversity, but we have to decide how we respond to it. My arm  and my hand are paralyzed but my heart isn’t, my mind isn’t, my dedication isn’t, my  work ethic isn’t, my commitment isn’t.” Inky is on a mission to serve and is someone that  takes tremendous pride in what he does.
