Attitude--and Perseverance are the Key

This reminds me of my daughter, who is now starting cycling for the disabled with a group called "Etgarim' ('etgarim' means 'challenges' in English. Please 'like' their Facebook page).  This 42 year old paraplegic man went cross country in his wheelchair.  Only took him 99 days.  In the course of his trek, he positively influenced many people to believe in themselves, not limit themselves to what others think they can or cannot do, and to follow their dreams and never give up.







Similarly, a younger paraplegic who was born with Spina Bifida just last month completed his journey across the United States, in 71 days. (watch video below).  They are--as is my daughter--proving that every person, regardless of disability, has a chance to do what they set out to do.  It just takes attitude, perseverance, and belief in oneself...
