My brother James is a inspiration to me. Five years ago, he was badly injured in a skiing accident. The doctors all said it was unlikely he would ever walk again. But James didn't listen. Right from the start, far from feeling sorry for himself, he told me that he was going to prome them wrong. He said he was going to keep his mind on nothing elese but walking. Well, it's amazing what a positive attitude can do! It took James more than two years, but he did get out of his wheelchair. The doctors all call him their 'little miracle'.
