A must-see. The story of a blind teenager in Sacramento who uses echolocation to navigate the world. This is part 1 of 5.
UPDATE: I found out that this young man died from a recurrence of cancer in January of this year. His website pays tribute to him. His story is still an inspiration, though. It shows the capabilities that all of us have but often don't know it.
But perhaps this is a sign to us Americans of how bad our international image had become before Obama took office. You all know how deep my feelings go about the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war (if you don't remember, letmeremindyou). If the most powerful country on earth has a foreign policy as dangerous as that, maybe it really would be viewed by other nations as the world's biggest problem. Maybe the election of a new president who is going in a different direction is so great a relief that it really would merit the Nobel Prize.
