Happened to catch this on a PBS program and began to look for it to share with the hockey nuts in my family. This is a fun, inspiring, amazing look at overcoming devastating handicaps and a triumph of spirit. Every bit of it has a basic message about life to me; there are no handicaps other than our mental obstacles and definition of "limitation". Thank you to everyone who created this or in any way participated! You are a gift to all (me!).
