“It's no longer a conversation about overcoming deficiency. It's a conversation about augmentation. It's a conversation about potential. A prosthetic limb doesn't represent the need to replace loss anymore. It can stand as a symbol that the wearer has the power to create whatever it is they want to create in that space. So, people that society once considered to be disabled can now become the architects of their own identities and indeed continue to change those identities by designing their bodies from a place of empowerment.” ~ Aimee Mullins, Athlete, actor and activist
*There is also a great message in the beginning of this video about how we get in the way of the natural curiosity of children. Kids only learn to be frightened of things like this when adults get in the way.
