Happy Friday! There is so much amazing and interesting content out there. Obviously we can’t include all of them, so we’re rounding up a few of our favorite articles and posts from the week. Let us know of any other articles we missed in the comments!
Kick off the weekend with a smile: There’s nothing like a good sense of humor, and 14-year-old Jack Carrol certainly shared his in his audition on Britain’s Got Talent. “The teen didn’t want his cerebral palsy to be what he called “the elephant in the room.” Instead, he used his short stand-up routine to poke fun at himself and the challenges he faces having a physical disability.” Read the rest of the article and watch his comedy act on the Huffington Post.
This is pretty cool – photographer Matej Peljhan uses the power of pictures (and different angles/perspectives) to bring a young boy’s imagination to life. Luca’s muscular dystrophy might restrict him to a wheel chair, but his imagination and drawings have no limits. After spending time with Luca, Peljhan says “He approaches all other activities he is, due to his handicapped body, unable to perform, in his own, witty way. Sometimes with the help of his imagination and virtual worlds where his creativity dashes to the sky and makes him forget his physical limitations and bonds.” Be sure to take a look at all the picture on Mashable.
One of our favorite tweets this week comes from Eliminate Prejudice– we love the inspirational quotes, like this one: “Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” ~Seneca
