(Stroke) The diving bell and the butterfly. After 20 days in a coma, Bauby awoke into a body which had all but stopped working: only his left eye functioned, allowing him to see and, by blinking it, to make clear that his mind was unimpaired. Almost miraculously, he was soon able to express himself in the richest detail: dictating a word at a time, blinking to select each letter as the alphabet was recited to him slowly, over and over again. In the same way, he was able eventually to compose this extraordinary book.

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly: A Memoir of Life in Death: Jean-Dominique Bauby, Jeremy Leggatt
"Not only was I exiled, paralyzed, mute, half deaf, deprived of all pleasures & reduced to the existence of a jellyfish, but I was also horrible to behold. There comes a time when the heaping up of calamities brings on uncontrollable nervous laughter - when, after a final blow from fate, we decide to treat it all as a joke." The Diving Bell & the Butterfly: A Memoir of Life in Death, Jean Dominique Bauby. Pinner writes: "Beautiful memoir. If you don't read anything else, read this."

Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham is a 20 year-old wheelchair moto-cross athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada. Aaron was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord, which resulted in him having no usage of his legs.
We think that a disability can stop us from trying and doing new things but Aaron Fotheringham an 18 year old boy diagnosed with Spina bifida proved everybody wrong. By skating not with a skateboard or a BMX bike but with his wheelchair.
So this guy lives his life in a wheelchair, AND he's a professional BMX rider... Inspiring.
