Its great to see how the world has changed a long way to go yet.
Other wise the fellow would not be having to do his tours and talks as many do.

I'm not sure that I understand where you're going Wheelin???
Maybe he has to or maybe he wants to. One thing is for sure is that if he wasn't doing this he would be active elsewhere.
Another classic example of this is a guy called Warren Macdonald who you may recall some years ago was horrifically injured on Hinchinbrook island and ended up losing both legs - he has now gone on to achieve many mountaineering feats that mere has been climbers such as myself can only dream about - but it makes me realise how lucky I am to still have all my limbs - even though they are not quite as good as they used to be.
Life is good if you make it so.

Sorry Den was relating to how the world (comparied to when I was a kid with a disablility) now encourages rather than hides us away in room's out of view. Shame its still Gov and big Corp's that proudly say they are handing out $$$$$ to such, yet still wave them away when it comes to employment etc and true support.
Yes the guy you speak of is inspirational as are the Aussie, NZ, Japanese and UK basketball teams recently highlighted on ABC for their games.

No need to apologise; I just didn't get the drift, but yes things can go further yet although when one thinks how it was 50 or more years ago it makes you cringe.

When was the last time you met someone who was genuinely completely happy? When was the last time *you* were unconditionally happy?
We humans in general still have a looooong way to go...
