About Disabilities

Perturbed Robin ©2008 Terry Gorley

Recently, I read about Oscar.
What an incredible young man he is!

“You’ll never progress if your mind is on your disability”
~Oscar Pistorius~

Due to a serious congentital leg and foot defect, Oscar's legs were removed when he was 11 months old. That was in 1986. As of 2008, he is known as the the Blade Runner and is "the fastest man on no legs." Oscar says, "I'm not disabled, I just don't have any legs."

Just as Oscar doesn't see his limitations as a disability, you shouldn't either. Remember the only limitations we have are those we place on ourselves.

Today, I urge you to be creative ... stretch your imagination ... reach for the stars ... know there are no limits to what you can achieve ... all it takes is patience ... persistance ... passion ... Faith & action ... Dare to be the BEST that you can be!
