Nick Vujicic is a 31 year old Australian born with Tetra-Amelia Syndrome, a rare condition which causes the individual to be born without arms and legs. Rather than resign himself to his limitations, Nick found ways to work around his disability, and leads an active life swimming, boating, playing soccer, and working as a motivational speaker. He has a smokin hot wife, and a child. He is also a Christian evangelist, but don't let that put you off. He's not a bible thumper. There are messages here for all of us. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

I'm a little embarassed admitting this, but....

I've avoided his stories lately ONLY since I've nurtured and caressed my poor state.

He does not sit in his sh** or moan about it. He lives. He doesn't try to be someone he's not. In fact, his speeches are uniquely honest.

I'm realizing in the past few months I've "used" my pains to get attention--and it's natural.

But he doesn't use his weakness for sympathy. He celebrates.

I'm done telling on myself :-) It kind of felt good though.

Very inspiring. He has overcome so much and does not seem to have any ill feelings. He truly is a hero and gives inspiration to all that suffer physical, emotional and other issues in their lives.

I look at people like him and I understand how they helped me overcome my CSA and all the ill effects it brought to my life.

I will watch again, because his message is so inspiring and enlightening.
