Injured Veterans and Adaptive Sports

I love spreading the word about what people with disabilities CAN do, and I do so whenever I can. I especially like this article from Sunday's New York Times, about injured veterans who live life full out after serious, life-changing injuries. These gutsy individuals move beyond obvious limitations and participate fully in a variety of adaptive sports, including paragliding for wheelchair users, putting many of us able-bodied folks to shame.

Read Accustomed to Wheels, Thrill-Seeking Injured Veterans Take Wing here.

It will make your heart and spirit soar, and remind you to look beyond disability.
