Don’t worry about me too much.

Don’t let what people say to determine how you feel about yourself … that’s a word to the wise for everybody.
What’s next for Kendrick?
Well Kendrick Norton will be getting a state of the art prosthetic arm that he can operate with his mind.
Here is what he revealed to TMZ:
I had a good case where they preserved a lot of my nerves from my arm, so I’ll be able to get a prosthetic I’ll be able to control with my mind.
Norton still has some healing to do before he gets fitted … but he’s learning all about his options in the meantime.
In the medical field, there’s a lot of new technology out here I’m just now finding out about.
As for his future, we asked Norton if he’s considering finding a new sport where he can compete with one hand … and while he hasn’t ruled it out, it’s just not his priority at the moment.
Instead, Norton says he’s focusing on starting a non-profit charity and wants to use his platform to inspire kids who are living without limbs.
I just wanna touch as many people as possible.
