The ability of a person cannot be determined by how he or she looks. More than the physical attributes, it is the inside that truly counts.
While some people may not be blessed with an appearance that society considers acceptable, it does not mean that they are not strong and beautiful individuals.
Take for example the athletes from Paralympics — the Olympic games for handicapped people. Some of them are missing a lower limb, lack both arms or are sometimes completely blind. Despite such situation, some of these athletes may even be stronger than those people who sit on the couch all day, munching on chips and watching TV series after TV series.
In this social experiment that we found, three Paralympic athletes were sent to the gym to do what they do best. Hidden cameras were installed to capture how the people reacted before, and most importantly, after the athletes did their thing.
Watch the video here:
As the popular saying goes: Do not judge a book by its cover. You’ll never know what another person is capable of doing unless you get to know them well and see for yourself. Let us pay respect to these athletes and ditch the jeers and smirks. They work extra hard to maintain their able bodies. They deserve all the praise.
