TodayI…Reflected on People Who Inspire Me

Last night I watched this movie:

You may or may not have heard her story. It was a popular one in the news back then. But, meet Bethany Hamilton:

 

Bethany Hamilton was the Pro surfer who lost an arm during a shark attack in October 2003. However, she didn’t let that stop her from doing the one thing that she was passionate about: surfing. She returned to the water and won many competitions after that. Listen to her tell her own story here:

Honesly, her story is very touching and the movie, I thought, did a good job in reflecting it. I was tearing up throughout the entire movie..so beware, it’s a tear jerker! What striked me the most was her determination and persistence to not let anything stop her from doing what she wanted to do. I tell my students constantly,  you can do anything if you put your mind to it. Bethany is definitely an inspiration. Soul Surfer is a must read and a must see!
