OMG. Wow. I was glad to see from the audience shots that I wasn't the only one crying. :P

Attitude (spirit) really IS everything. I never forgot for a moment that they had missing limbs, but it never mattered--they were as beautiful, sexy, powerful, transcendent as any dancers I've seen.

Inspiring for anyone who thinks they somehow "aren't enough."

We all have strengths that support the weakness of others in a complimentary symbiosis.

The first thing I thought of was Tiananmen Square in 1989...and Hollywood's culture of shallow perfection. What a contrast!

Yanno...........I never saw the audience the first time I watched this.
Musta had the sun or *something* in my eyes....

Absolutely breathtaking. I am still wiping away that incidental precipitation. How could you watch something like that and not be moved?

I so needed to see that. Thank you.

Week in Review, Carnival Games & Carny Tricks? What is going on at our Capitol Washington D.C.?

Mrs. C.,

I showed this to my older boys (one of whom dances) and they were so impressed that they asked to watch it again (this is saying a lot as it is not their preference in dance). They then discussed the difference between physical limits and limits on what can be accomplished. Wow. This was powerful. Thank you for providing the material for a wonderful teaching/discovery moment.

William sends.

(This is powerful stuff you post, Ma'am.)
