It’s ironic how people with physical challenges or disabilities are often pitied in our society, even while they possess super abilities that are beyond that of normal, “able-bodied” people. For example, their patience and maturity in overcoming the ignorance of the people who pity them are remarkable. So are their strength and resilience in simply living each day with challenges that, quite frankly, scare the majority of people.
And then there are the para athletes. They not only perform their sports despite serious physical challenges, they actually perform them better — sometimes way better — than people without their challenges.
