It is never easy to overcome adversity when it strikes you. We should celebrate when we read stories of people who overcame the odds and encourage them if it is within our space to do so.
Mr Victor Hoon was 20 when he had a motorcycle accident that caused him to be paralysed from his neck downwards. The journey of his life after that was certainly a major struggle. Besides overcoming the daily challenges of daily care, he took up the challenge of painting using his mouth. Initially, it was an extremely painful experience for him, having to bite the paintbrush. But persevering, he managed to produce beautiful pictures – such as those you see in this picture below.
Don’t you think we should celebrate such grit in overcoming odds?
