Such a great inspiration. I ain`t religious at all but there is way more to him than just his religious views.

Earth - Glad you asked, no offense taken.

Here`s my right foot (oddly enough I`m missing my left foot picture... just like I`m missing my toes! Ha... haha... okay it was a bad joke >_>):

Yeah they said it took a bit longer for me to learn to walk, but Sarah was absolutely right in the assumption that when you`re born with something it`s much easier to deal with than losing an appendage or body part and having to adjust. My dominant hand (genetically) is my left one, but I was born without that so I just use my right hand and it feels natural, as far back as my memory goes it has felt natural.

Really cool.

One thing I always find so remarkable about people who have unfortunate disabilities like this, is how they find a way to adapt. Like his writing -- it`s pretty neat by normal standards, not even withstanding the fact that he uses his mouth. Or like the woman without arms who knows how to do everything with her feet. I can`t wrap my mind around being able to do those things or having the perserverance to learn how. I guess Jeff Goldblum was right. Life really does... find a way.

@ SarahofBorg: The point here was the title, which in case you missed it was: "Proof You Can Overcome Anything".

I find the fact that he has learned to deal with the hand that life has dealt him WITHOUT a lot of bitching and moaning and "why me?" to be somewhat inspiring.

I get the point you`re making, even if it was rather trollish.

My question to you is, where do YOU get off raining on everyone`s parade?

This is IAB.

Raining on parades is MY job.

Make sure you remember that next time, lest I be forced to give you a personal demonstration of why I have a black belt in Flame-Fu.

Just to point out to everyone else, I don`t want to make it look like I`m trying to belittle him, unfortunately this is one of those things that society frowns upon if you have a different opinion (or if you don`t agree with the "right" opinion). Its one of those "things" your not allowed an opinion on (you know what I,m talking about), the disabled, homosexuals, women`s rights, human rights, third world countries, poverty, the homeless, the list goes on.

Of course no one would want to give him the job of motivationally speaking. In his current life, however, no one would want to give him a job that requires, in any fashion, the use of any appendages. I don`t believe those have the same weight.

Just becaue you only hear about the ones that make it and do well doesn`t mean there aren`t ones that fail with just the same amount, or even more, help and support throughout their lifetime.

well I`m glad you took me seriously h2 because I`m suprised anyone did. It`s my honest opinion. But what you point out just makes it sound even less impressive. He doesn`t know anything better, so it`s really no surprise that it doesn`t stop him.
And he`s only financially independent now because he`s had the opportunity to live the kind of life that would make people want to listen to him. If it was the same exact guy with the same exact amount of success in his life but without the deformity than nobody would want to give him a job as a motivational speaker.

SarahOfBorg - "...I`m sure his parents helped him out a lot and he`s not truly independent, even if he is doing rather well. Anyone would be doing well in their life with that kind of support."
I disagree, the reason anyone who is born with some sort of disability (appears to*) usually turn out well is that they are born in to the situation, they never knew anything else. Never having something and having something taken away from you are two completely different things. It is much harder to go on if you had something all your life and then had it taken away from you, as opposed to never having it in the first place.

* - by appears to i mean you never hear about the ones that give up and die
