Anecdotal Inspiriational Story
It's the cold morning and I'm hungry, sleep-deprived, and behind in my homework. Plus, there's a sea of bike traffic by the Quad.
And then here comes a man trucking along with a bionic leg. His leg, from his torso down to his feet is a compound of glistening, metallic, pneumonic cylinders and rubber tendons. In addition, this man is holding a long, white cane with red tape on it. He is blind. He's waving the wand back and forth like a someone holding a metal detector. Surprisingly, he negotiates the traffic well, and even upon encountering a small staircase, he hops over it and continues unbridled. And that's what this man was: unbridled. He had his chest stout, his head straight, and an earnest, confident look on his face.
Upon seeing this I was stunned. To think, that here was a man that appeared to have suffered a major calamity, a bad car accident perhaps, and had the temerity to still stick it out at a tough university.
