If he can overcome his problems, I think we should be able to overcome ours. Or at least be grateful that we do not have his problems to deal with.

I admire his strength. I do not know if I could deal with it as well as he does.

One of the current affairs programs here did a story on this fellow last year. I was gobsmacked, he is a true hero.

Thanks for posting this Jett.

i have actually seen that video before. what an amazing guy - i am glad he realises how complete he really is, despite having physical things missing.

thanks for posting this, Pen - i think we needed to be reminded of how powerful attitude is, and how precious life is..

That was so powerful, he's a truly amazing person i'd never see him before today but it's made me think I should try harder to be thankful for what I have.

This is so powerful that every time I whine or complain this always pops back in my mind... I will break my own rule and think positive!
