LESSON OF THE WEEK: You have all it takes to succeed in 2016

The little girl  who had to use a basketball as her prosthetic body :

In 2000, Qian Hongyan, was injured tragically in a car accident when she was only 3 years old. To insure her survival, the doctors were forced to amputate her legs.

Qian’s family, living in Zhuangxia, China, was unable to afford modern prosthetics and instead used half a basketball to get around on. Once on the ball she uses two wooden props to help her move around. She struggled to live her life with a basketball as an underprop, ‘walking’ between school and home by herself.

Qian Hongyan, who was forced to use half a basketball as her prosthetic body, inspired millions with her ambition to compete as a swimmer in the 2012 Paralympics in London. The girl’s story got widely reported in the country, and drew the attention of the Ministry of Public Security and China Rehabilitation Research Center.

Qian now has a pair of proper prosthetic legs, but still says she likes to use the basketball from time to time as it is easier for her to get in and out of the pool.

May God bless the brave little girl who has inspired millions the world over with her resolute will power.


Moral : Count your blessings and your problems….If your problems outnumber your blessings, Count Again…. Chances are the things that you take for granted were not added up…


  1. This is very inspirational. Many atimes, we allow our problems to outnumber our blessings because we fail to acknowledge the fact that many people don't have the opportunity to breathe the air we breathe, drink the water we drink, move their bodies the way we move ours, see with their eyes the way we see with ours, walk with their legs the way we walk with ours, speak with their mouths the way we speak with many do I want to mention? May God help us to be appreciative of His blessings in our lives.
