disability is a reduction of function or the absence of a particular body part or organ. It can be a physical or mental condition that limits a person’s movements, senses, or activities.
A disability is not a handicap unless it becomes a disadvantage that makes progress or success difficult.

I love these inspiring stories from disabled persons around the world who overcame great odds to succeed in fulfilling their dreams, the author included.
