No Arms,No Legs,No Worries
I want you to think what kind of ideology made this man so great. Do you think he was told he couldn't do something because of what he looked liked? Do you think he let someone else do for him or did he do for himself? We are all individuals and we need to look at people as individuals not groups. He is not handicap in my eyes and that is great. How many people give up because of where they were born or what sex they are or because of the color of their skin? Who is feeding that kind of mentality to these individuals? Could it be that we are making people handicap when they aren't just by giving them the "poor you" handouts? We have to stop telling people they can and start pushing people to succeed or fail trying. How many times do we make excuses for our kids? They have ADHD or they had sugar or whatever the obstacle may be we can make it worse or better. I'm sure this man seen some tough love in his life. And that is why he is the way he is. Reflect on this man and what he has done. And then remember him the next time you "poor you" to a person with an infliction. Look in the mirror and see that you can do so much more if you just stop holding yourself back. God blessed this man with what we call an infliction.
