One of the things I love about browsing the web is that I occasionally come across different modes of media that depict things that are truly inspirational.
Like this video. It features a montage of Nick Vujicic giving an inspirational talk to a group of teens, his early life, school life, and brief descriptions of growing up.
Nick Vujicic is a preacher and an international motivational speaker. He is also the Director of a non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs, whose mission “is to cross boundaries and break down barriers, to build bridges that bring people to the love and hope found in Jesus Christ.“

Skidded down an abyss of trials
Since more than a decade ago.
Traversed with all the world’s pressures
On a path both long and slow.
Burdened with my spirit’s destruction,
Wondering how my life would be.
For so long I’ve waited for signs
Of the time when I would be free.
Now I’m clearing away the broken pieces and patching things up
I will resolve I for one and endeavor superiority.
I shall get to your feet and never will I all over again
Assent to all of your clobbering and all of your mockery.
I will show what I am made of
I will disclose what I have got.
And after everything’s done,
Let’s see who will still be around.
I’ve put up with the offenses
And ignored all the blemishes.
I am now up-and-coming
Putting out your pleading.
I’m still signing my song.
