Brett shared the url to this video in our Eyes Apart Strabismus Support group recently. Brett writes, “If strabismus seems like a barrier to living our dreams and gaining acceptance, just imagine the hurdles these two beautiful dancers have managed to overcome.”
The ballet “Hand in Hand” is performed by Ma Li and Zhai Xiaowei, who lost limbs in separate auto accidents.
Ma, who lost her arm when she was 19, says, “It’s the power of love and the strength of joining hands, which keeps us persevering.”
Zhai was only 4 years old when he lost his leg. The determination, strength, and grace he displays reminds us that we are only as handicapped as we allow ourselves to be.
