Olympic Moment VI – Mark Arendz
Thank you and congratulations to Team Canada and to all the athletes of the Pyeongchang Paralympic Games for inspiring us this week, and congratulations to Mark Arendz
, Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony, on his six medals including Gold in the 15 K Standing Biathlon. These have been his third Paralympic games since losing his arm at the age of seven in a farming accident.
Paralympic Moment V
Although Canada’s Michelle Salt may have just missed the podium it’s not only about the medals as her athleticism, optimism and positivity are all inspirational enough.
Hear her “incredible story” in her own words and understand why.
Three more Paralympic moments to inspire us all.
Last Friday I had the good fortune to attend the book launch of Your Heart Is the Size of Your Fist by Dr. Martina Scholtens. I am featuring it today on thechangingpalette to encourage you all to read Martina’s moving reflections on her ten years at the Bridge Refugee Clinic here in Vancouver. It is a book for our time and Martina’s writing inspires us all. Congratulations Martina and thank you.
Martina’s book is available from All Lit Up, Amazon.ca, Indigo, Amazon.com, Target and Barnes & Noble, and Banyen Books in Vancouver.
There is nothing more inspiring at the moment than seeing
our daughter holding her beautiful little girl.
