Proof Disabled People CAN Have Fun To

3,513
This is just a very short list of some AMAZING accomplishments performed by handicapable persons...

Being disabled does NOT mean we cannot do things any more like hiking, swimming, biking, climbing, fishing, camping, skate boarding, hunting, etc... etc...

It only means we have to find ways around our handicaps and discover new ways to do the things we enjoy...

If we just sit around feeling sorry for ourselves at home all day then we will NEVER truly heal and NEVER be whole again on the inside despite what we may have lost on the outside...

We NEED to stay active and get out there and be something and do something with our lives in order to live a healthy and free life...

We have to get up and if need be ask for help and do what ever it takes to accomplish our dreams...

I AM A PROUD DISABLED ARMY VETERAN AND I DO NOT LET MY INJURIES KEEP ME DOWN ! ! !

The people shown in this video are but a drop in the bucket compared to the MANY HERO'S out there that go out and over come their challenges and PERSEVERE daily ! ! !

Don't be one of those people that claim disabled folks are useless ! ! !

Be a supporter and give them encouragement ! ! !
