I am crying with pride as I write this. Winning is wonderful, but THIS is what the Olympics are all about:
Athletic competition is glorious, but bringing hope to the disabled and marginalized (especially children) is worthy of the highest honor and praise.
Good on Oscar Pistorius, who brings hope to those (especially children) who seek only to walk. And here’s to the researchers and doctors and trainers who make is possible for Oscar Pistorius and so many others like him to live the lives we take for granted. Science and technology are truly life changing, life saving intellectual developments, and those who use it to help and inspire those in need are all the more praiseworthy!
