We’re “ReBlogging” select articles from SpinalColumnBlog.com — the platform that gave inspiration for what you now know as Spinal Column Radio.

I love the oft quoted maxim from our developer, Dr. BJ Palmer, that states, “You never know how far reaching something you think, say, or do today, will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.”  It’s so true.  And what’s so true about this quote is that it works in reverse too.  Because it’s the things that we DON’T THINK, SAY, or DO today that have potential to also impact the lives of millions tomorrow.  

In this Spinal Column Reblog, we’re retelling a story that demonstrates BJ’s quote in action.  The chiropractor is Dr. Kevin Donka; and what you’ll see is that his action aboard a jet plane not only impacted the life of a little one, but every other person on board as well.

….But that was what happened “today.”  For when Dr. Donka, stepped out of his comfort zone to do the right thing, his mind could not have fathomed the impact it would have on “tomorrow.”  For the momentum of this now three-year-old-plus inspirational and moving story will, no doubt one day, affect the lives of millions as people like you retell it. 



Baby at 37,000 feet[originally published in KCN, June 2011]

On a flight home, chiropractor Kevin Donka settled into his seat.  Behind him was a mother with her baby.

As the flight took off, the baby — as many will — began to cry.  The mother did everything in her power to quiet the little one… but to no avail.  The child simply would not calm down.  And then something happened that every parent fears while flying — the child’s cry catapulted to a full-tilt shrill.  Again, the mother tried and tried but the child could not be comforted.

At about minute ten of the full-blown wail, Dr. Donka began to think to himself, “Maybe I should offer to help.  Maybe there is something I can do.”
