Just finished watching the opening ceremony for the paralympics. What a fantastic production and a wonderful storyline and message. I don’t know about the US but over here there has been little coverage given to the paras in past years. It is covered by ABC, which is not your commercial network but our national government broadcaster, which incidentally always has the best programming of any network here by far. They seem to be going to give it a good airing.
I am so glad that at last the recognition is coming to this movement - it carries a message of not only promoting the cause of the disabled but of everybody having more awareness and consideration for those around. What an inspirational sight to see so many folk with disabilities showing the world such a happy, positive attitude.
As my dad used to quote: “I wore no shoes and I complained, until I met a man who had no feet.” They rock!
