Most of the world watched at least part of the Summer Olympics in London. What followed on the heels of this epic event was much less publicized but even more inspiring. It was the Paralympics, held at the same venues in London. Paralympic athletes are those with physical disabilities—for example, missing extremities or individuals in wheelchairs. Oscar Pistorius from South Africa became famous for being the first Paralympic to run in the regular Olympics. As I read about these games, a sad realization came to mind. Most babies diagnosed with physical disabilities inside the womb are aborted instead of being celebrated and encouraged to compete athletically. It’s time we celebrated and cherished every life with or without disabilities, before or after birth.
