I write about my life and life itself seen through my eyes for who can write through the experiences of others if not their own?

Overcoming

Sitting on the rocks watching the ocean roll in, I saw a couple of women entered the water heading over to a guy in a boat waiting for them.  The young brunette leaned over to what I thought was to remove her shoes.  She removed her prosthetics instead and handed her friend her leg.  She walked on her back until she reached enough depth then gracefully swam to the boat.
I stared at the boat until I lost them in the horizon.  Her image remained with me.

People like her are the true spirit of endurance, of never giving up.  Small failures defeat us while others triumph over huge ones.
