I wish it got as much coverage as the Olympics. It is the test of the human spirit raised to anither level and a display of the best of humanity. Tears in my eyes with admiration for all the contestants. Massive thank yous to the organizers.
Wonderful stuff with which to feed the soul.

To everyone who wants to say things like "that is so inspirational...", please be inspired by their feats as athletes, not as disabled people. I say this as a disabled athlete myself.

It's hard not to see that they have, over came and triumphed the physical- that in it's self is beautiful.

Are you disabled from your service as an 82nd. "All American"?

I kind of wish that I could say that my disability was service-connected, as that would make the story much more dramatic, but alas, mine is much more mundane. Six years of service in Airborne Infantry (3/505th in the 82nd and 2/502 Recon platoon in the 101st) and I never suffered anything more serious than a couple of partially-separated shoulders and various sprains and strains. My disability - incomplete paralysis from T12/L1 - was due to contracting Transverse Myelitis after I left active duty.

I see your point, and I do appreciate it. I just hope that people recognize our paralympians as athletes first. We (athletes) all have to overcome the natural physical and mental limitations of the human conditions, but some of us have just a bit more to overcome... which I guess should be inspiring, so maybe I still have a few hangups of my own to get past.:)

The support and coverage you give your Paralympians is absolutely disgraceful
