Sue Austin: Deep sea diving ... in a wheelchair

Sue Austin: Deep sea diving...in a wheelchair - The title will inspire you and the video will take your breath away. It's the experience of unbounded freedom and joy, as described by Sue Austin that really moved me. The wheelchair brings her freedom and is her best friend. If all wheelchair users thought this way the fear of limitations and being bound in would be eliminated.

Freedom is found by creating our own stories, by learning to take the texts of our lives as seriously as we do 'official' narratives.' --Davis 2009, TEDx Women. The following individuals have created their own stories. Aaron Fotheringham, aka "Wheelz", 21 years old, does backflips in his wheelchair. Dick and Rick Hoyt, the most inspirational father and son team have raced in the Ironman Triathlon, many times.
