Reload 025: Hand in Hand (Ma Li and Zhai Xiaowei with missing limbs)

RELOAD,  REFRESH, RESTART  025 –  It’s what we do in our computers.  So with life, we take a break.  If all else fails, reformat. Sit back, relax and enjoy my favorite video reposts. 🙂

What makes you ponder right after watching this beautiful piece of art, is that you will begin to run out of excuses on why you can’t pursue your own dreams and succeed.

From a CCTV Dance Contest emerged a stunning performance by two persons with disabilities, Ma Li and Zhai Xiaowei, whose loss of limbs from separate car accidents didn’t stop them from shining.  She was a promising ballerina and he was a cyclist for the national special Olympics.

She invited him to be her dance partner.  He has never danced before.  The training was very tough.  In 2007  they won the Silver Medal in China’s national dance competition — out of 7,000 competitors.

Find their story here or anywhere on the net. But first, watch their moving and winning performance.
