Paralympics Thoughts

I’m amazed and short of words,
Nevertheless I speak:
I stand in awe of the courage of men and women
who if they allowed it, could quite easily become castaways
but who have refused to be less than they were created to be.
Men and women who know that it’s not about what you see,
but it’s about that which is within.
They choose to be defined outside the boundaries of their limitations;
They step up and do the seemingly impossible
Just because they are more than able.
These men and women of the Paralympics games,
They leave me wordless. Again and again.
