Life can be very unfair to some, like the little girl with no legs & the man who lost the lower half of his body. But the handicaps didn’t stop these two.

Plus another lesson in gratitude for what you have

The Story of Peng ShuilinIn

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. Fat people say,” I want to be slim.” Skinny people say,

“I want to be fatter.”

Poor people want to be rich and rich are never satisfied with what they have.
Peng Shuilin
Peng Shuilin 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 Shuilin, 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.

He survived against all odds.

Now Peng Shuilin 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.

It took careful consideration, skilled measurement and technical expertise.

Peng has been walking the corridors of Beijing Rehabilitation Centre with the aid of his specially adapted legs and a re-sized walking frame.

RGO is a recipicating gait orthosis, attached to a prosthetic socket bucket.

There is a cable attached to both legs so when one goes forward, the other goes backwards.

Rock to the side, add a bit of a twist and the leg without the weight on it advances, while the other one stays still, giving a highly efficient way of ambulation.

Oh, so satisfying to ‘walk’ again after ten years with half a body!
Peng Shuilin
Hospital vice-president Lin Liu said: “We’ve just given him a check up; he is fitter than most men his age.”

Peng Shuilin has opened his own bargain supermarket, called the Half Man-Half Price Store. The inspirational 37-year-old has become a businessman and is used as 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.”

You have a whole body. You have feet.

Now you have met a man who has half a body and no feet.

His life is a feat of endurance, a triumph of the human spirit in overcoming extreme adversity.

Next time you want to complain about something trivial, don’t.

Remember Peng Shulin instead.
