In the art world, many artists withweakbodies have shown us astrongpower in their great works of art. Take Frida Kahlo for example. She was a healthy girl until she was knocked down by a bus at the age of twelve. Much of her body was seriously hurt, but her mind wasn’t. In her paintings, we can feel her strong love of art and life. Another example is Christy Brown. He was born in bad health, and the only part of his body that could move was his left foot. However, using his only foot, he still was able to write and draw wonderfully. In his autobiography, Brown wrote what happened in his life and how he began to draw pictures with his left foot. And don’t forget Stevie Wonder. He became blind soon after he was born, but he is now a popular singer and songwriter.

These artists withweakbodies bring us many good things and much hope with theirstrongminds. Their stories tell us that the most important thing in life is not what we have, but what we make of it.
