Valuing Education Despite Being Disabled

I was struck by a story that I watched about few nights ago on TV. A girl with so much physical disability after getting disease during her highschool days.  Instead of just giving up or just crying of what happened to her, she literally lifted herself with the help of her friends and family.

She accepted wholeheartedly her disease or inability to walk because of muscle dystrophy on her lower extremities. She;'s now continuing to study with the help of some friends and through her computer and it may seem impossible but she wanted to finish college and landed a job. I guess an online work will be best for her bec. she doesn't need to go out.

Every time I hear stories like this, I can't help but to be glad and wish that all students will do good in school. There are those who are poor or disabled like her but she has the passion or the will to learn. On the other hand, there are rich kids who have all the money in the world to pay for their tuition fees but they seem to lack enthusiasm to study. Too bad for them, they didn't know how important education is.

Let this story inspire others as well.
