It has been 21 years since this man has left his hometown – so when his friends recently surprised him with his first-ever trip to the beach, he was understandably awestruck.
The last time that David Thomas ventured outside of Jefferson County, Alabama, he was a 15-year-old boy on a field trip.
Though he has always dreamed of going to the beach, his cerebral palsy has made it difficult for him to get around because of his wheelchair.
Upon hearing about this, his friends from church took the 36-year-old man on a vacation to Panama City, Florida. They even got him a special wheelchair so he could traverse across the sands.
