Here is a very nice speech by one of them, Bill Shannon (some of you probably know him from the Visa commercial or RJD2 video clip "Work it Out").
I'd also like to show you one more thing, that I've seen during my classes but unfortunately I can't find it
It was a BBC documentary about a man who was a victim of Thalomide (he was born without arms) and despite that achieved many great things (took part in the olympics, swimming and target shooting; was playing for one of the major teams in AFL; driving his own car; having a family etc. etc.). If anyone would find it, please let me know.
