  • Author's Note


    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

  • Share your thoughts!


    I would greatly appreciate it if you shared your thoughts with me. Please feel free to leave messages at the comments box below each post. Thanks!

Real Life Inspiration of Derek Redmond

Tuesday, September 20, 2011


Tormented by frustration, Derek Redmond | amalgamationspp.com

Almost two decades after the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, the Derek Redmond real life inspiration continues to spread around the world. The first time I saw his video two years ago was tough to watch.

Just like Derek, at some points in our lives, we break our hamstrings, falter and fall to the ground. "But how many of us would actually do what Derek Redmond did?" Would be a good question to ask.

I've gotten around to finally have the time to edit the video, but for the longest time, I wanted to blog about this for the simple truth that I think our whole lifetime is captured within this 4:47 video.

To Derek Redmond and his father, Jim Redmond, you personified the true definition of victory. It's when you persevere through people telling you to stop, not heeding even the most unbearable pain, to reach for that noble end with that one important inspiration in mind and become more than you can be.

Thank you, and may many others emulate your example of perseverance, courage, inspiration and love.
