After Accident Paralympics Athlete Can Walk Again



Saw this amazing bit of video over at Pat Dollard, about a Dutch paralympics athlete who regained her ability to walk after a "freak" accident.

I can remember a time, not too long ago, that such events were sometimes termed "miraculous". Some might even say, despite all the tongue in cheek imitators, that this was a "Christmas miracle".

Now it is true that the miraculous is truly out of the ordinary, but has the language degenerated so, or is it faith of the speakers, that something that might once have been considered miraculous is now simply "freaky"?

Anyway, I thought you might like to hear her story.
