He does the impossible

When I watched Nick Vijucic on Youtube for the first time, I was so touched by his courage to live on cheerfully despite his physical handicap that I thanked God profusely for what I was endowed with.

The 26-year-old Australian was born limbless. He has no arms and no legs yet he can so many we can't imagine limbless persons are capable of doing. For example he can swim, dive from a springboard, ski and play hockey. The only 'limb' he possesses is his left chicken-wing-like structure that helps to move him around and to key in words to the computer. He can even prepare his own meals too.

He goes from place to place motivating others, using himself as an example. To him nothing is impossible as long as we are determined to overcome all obstacles that come our way
