When you find yourself dwelling on who or what is holding you back in life, think of 7 year-old Annie Clark, a first-grader who recently won a penmanship award established for children with either a “cognitive delay or intellectual, physical or development disability.” Annie, a Chinese adoptee, was born without hands.
Annie’s father, Tom Clark, described his daughter’s other abilities to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
“Annie has always been very, very determined, very self-sufficient in dressing herself and feeding herself,” Mr. Clark said. “She can ride a bike. She swims. She is just determined that there’s nothing she can’t do.”
Her father said she also types on a keyboard and uses an iPod Touch with no difficulties.
Man, do I feel like a lazy jerk right about now.
