Feel Good Story Of The Day

Given all the economic doom and gloom we find ourselves mired in of late, I thought I would take a moment to brighten things up around here and introduce you to Mallory Weggemann

Miss Weggemann lost the use of her legs during high school due to complications arising from a medical procedure.  Not to be deterred, she is now breaking records left and right as a competitive swimmer.

My favorite quote:

“It’s something where I can get out of my chair, and it’s just me and the water, and I can move about freely,” she said. “Even when my competitive days are over, I’ll still need that, because it’s a big part of who I am and what I know.”

Do read the whole thing.
