You may have already seen Channel 4’s ad for the Paralympics…..if you have, watch it again, because it is worth it. If you haven’t watch it to be uplifted, inspired and listen to a fantastic song.

Now find out more……..

As Alvin Law says, there are no disabilities, just people with incredible talents!

[Thanks to everyone who taught me how to imbed videos. It worked like a charm. I think I was overthinking the whole process!]

    I personally know a few people with serious disabilities who have wrought miracles – it makes me shut up every time I feel like complaining…

    Reblogged this on Letters from Athens and commented:
    Having watched the Paralympics in Athens in 2004, I remain in awe of these people – they are real heroes. Read this post by Anne Lawson.

    I think this is one of their best yet! The ballroom bit was filmed at The Rivoli Ballroom, near me and where I’ve been dancing a lot. Didn’t know the back stories or that the band were so global so thanks for sharing them. Ps Go Team GB!

      The back stories were fascinating, and showed both how ordinary and at the same time superhuman people are!
