Losing a limb is obviously a great physical and psychological trauma for a person.
Accepting a whole new dimension is an incredibly difficult process for people having to go through an amputation, but hopefully some of them manage to transform their loss into strength, beginning a new life and finding new incredible opportunities.
A great example of courage and strength is Alex Zanardi, the popular Italian Indy Car driver who lost both of his legs after an accident in 2001 and found the inner strength to go on after his trauma, winning two handbike olympic gold medals in 2012 London Paralympics and starting a new life as an athlete.
Below you can see 16 people who lost their limbs but are still able to be positive and have fun of themselves.
These people are the best example for those who are still struggling, finding enormous difficulties in the process of accepting their situation. This post wants to be an encouragement for all of them.
Life can still be beautiful, and these 16 people are the best example to prove it.
