The weakest, the strongest! A model to follow

Seattle running back is a winner no matter who triumphs in Super Bowl clash with Denver Broncos

p17colemanGETTYColeman, 23, is the first legally deaf player to appear in a Super Bowl. Without his two hearing aids he rates his hearing as a two on a scale of 10, and even with them, no better than an eight on a good day. His disability became big news when he agreed to appear in an awareness-raising Duracell commercial showing that it was possible to overcome such adversity. “Duracell and I wanted to inspire others, to give them the motivation I would have needed if I hadn’t had my parents. Everybody has problems. I wear a hearing aid, some people have glasses, some people have depression. But as long as you don’t let that get in the way of what you want to do, you can do anything.”

The Independent. Sunday 02 February 2014

This is just some food for thought but you are invited to write something about it, if you want.
