    The Story of Peng Shulin.
(Sorry about the gore but this is Peng’s story and it had to be told properly ;)

In life we keep complaining about what is or why we don’t have.
Half the time we seem dissatisfied, though full-bodied and free to choose.

Poor people want to be rich and rich are never satisfied with what they have.
PENG Shulin is 78cms high. He was born in Hunan Province, China.
In 1995, in Shenzhen, a freight truck sliced his body in half.
His lower body and legs were beyond repair.
Surgeons sewed up his torso.

Peng, 37, spent nearly two years in hospital in Shenzhen, southern China,undergoing a series of operations to re-route nearly every major organ or system inside his body.

Peng kept exercising his arms, building up strength, washing his face and brushing his teeth.

Now he does push ups. #deadyourexcuses
He Survived against all odds.

Peng Shulin has astounded doctors by learning to walk again after a decade.

Considering Peng’s plight, doctors at the China Rehabilitation Research Centre in Beijing devised an ingenious way to allow him to walk on his own,creating a sophisticated egg cup-like casing to hold his body, with two bionic legs attached.
Peng has been walking the corridors of Beijing Rehabilitation Centre with the aid of his specially adapted legs and a resized walking frame.

Oh so satisfying to ‘walk’ again after ten years with half a body!

Hospital vice-president Lin Liu said: “We’ve just given him a checkup; he is fitter than most men his age.”

Peng Shulin has opened his own bargain supermarket, called the Half Man-Half Price Store.

The inspirational 37-year-old has become a businessman and is a role model for other amputees.

At just 2ft 7ins tall, he moves around in a wheelchair giving lectures on recovery from disability.

His attitude is amazing, he doesn’t complain.

“He had good care, but his secret is cheerfulness. Nothing ever gets him down.”

I post stories like this because they inspire us, and provide me with humility.
