A man born without arms shows us that “every task requires ingenuity.” The video asks us “how do you get through your day?” and reminds us that we have much we probably take for granted and much to be grateful for. It also confronts some of our disability stereotypes and shows us that genius and purpose come in all shapes and sizes. Richie Parker is a true inspiration. His love for cars lead him to working for a NASCAR company and owning his perfect drive. He is just like all of us, another divine being having a powerful human experience.
Some people make the most of their circumstances, those are the conscious creators. Others prefer to play victim and complain. Which one are you?
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor E. Frankl, “Man’s Search for Meaning”
