An inspirational video of recovery from TED that puts my torn ligament in perspective

I've been hampered lately by a torn ligament, which has slowed down my job search, blogging, and life in general. It's easy to start feeling sorry for yourself in a situation like this. But then you see videos like this talk by Ramona Pierson at Ted on her accident and recovery. It's a story of amazing recovery in an assisted living center. The funniest part for me was the men teaching her vocabulary with cussword scrabble and to talk like a sailor. The rest of the story is just inspirational; it makes my issues appear as large as a speck of dust. And I appreciate the well-told stories of people like this. They have overcome incredible adversity with the help of a supportive community to inspire others.
And it certainly inspired me.
