Overcoming the Human Body’s Inherant Limitations

I received this video by email the other day (Thanks Mom) and it is a perfect example of why the spirit is much more important than the body that we are born into.

The video is of a man born with no arms or legs but a good reminder to anyone who’s ever said “I can’t” before. He is also an example to the world on how to be untouchable in your determination to persevere.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers: Disabled Empowerment Advocates?

An earlier posting of mine, titled “Scar Tissue” has nothing to do with the Red Hot Chili Peppers song of the same name, but I was probably subconsciously thinking of the song when I wrote my “Scar Tissue”. And I think I know why. The song includes this lyric:

“I’ll make it to the moon if I have to crawl”

I interpret this as an expression of never-ending determination by someone of whom not much is to be expected. If you are in a wheelchair and you are not determined, the world will likely step on you and keep moving. I know this. The world steps on me occasionally, but it happens because I let it.

Sure, nobody is completely unstoppable, but I know, somewhere inside that if you want to make it to the moon, you have to be willing to get there by any means possible.

By any means? Well, you know what I mean. Just don’t step on, or run over the toes of anyone else who is on their own path to the moon, okay?
