Disability through illness or injury is indiscriminate.
Becoming disabled is a difficult transition both mentally & physically.
We need to find our own way to adapt our new lives so we can embrace what we do have & live our lives to the full.
We are extremely excited to announce the launch of our charity. Please check out our charity's website by clicking on the link to the right:
Reason to Smile- Incomprehensible Challenges Turned on Their Heads!
Today’s ‘Reason to Smile’, post is a link to a video about a wonderful young man who lives in the USA. This young man’s name is Patrick Henry Hughes & he was born without eyes & also with a tightening of the joints that prevents his limbs from ever straightening. He has been blind & wheelchair dependant since birth, but despite his incomprehensible challenges, he has achieved some truly incredible feats of human adaptation & perseverance...
At the beginning of the film, Patrick’s father speaks of their initial reaction
As parents to finding out that their son was so severely disabled. Patrick senior says on the film-‘Why us? We played by all the rules, we worked hard; what did we do to deserve this?’.
I think that most of us who watch this video can relate to this hugely brave & frank admission of frustration.
I won’t spoil for you any further, what is a truly an incredible short film.
Please take 7 minutes out of your day to be inspired…
