UNUSUAL

Two months ago I held a very unusual object in my hand. I also had the opportunity to hang it around my neck to feel how it feels.

Mary Fisher our own Upper Hutt, New Zealand world champion Paralympic swimmer 2016, was the guest speaker at our monthly Soroptimist meeting.

https://www.facebook.com/MaryFisherNZ/

She told us about the excitement of winning a gold medal at Rio Paralympic games.

The medal has small balls in it. The gold one has the most in it. It is for the blind to hear the sound of it and recognise which one it is!

Two more medals.

We could all touch and hold it!

Unusual indeed.

  2. Kan nie verstaan dat niemand jou geluk wens met jou goue medalje nie en ek het gedog vir my ouderdom is ek nog redelik atleties – kom nie naby jou nie 🙂 .
    So ‘n klankryke medalje is bepaald ongewoon!

    1. Dis beslis n eenmaal in n leeftyd ondervinding. Ek het Mary my plakkaat van die “One million stars against violence” laat voel. Sy was so opgewonde om dit te hoor en voel en wou hê dat daar n foto geneem word om die wêreld te wys sy ondersteun dit. Wonderlike persoon, so nederig en dankbaar vir alles en almal wat haar help.

    1. Stem saam. Saam met helpers vorm hul n gedugte span mense wat saamwerk om sukses te behaal. Dit was n belewenis om Mary te hoor en te sien!

    1. Beslis ja. Dis ook ongelooflik om te hoor hoe so n persoon hard werk om haar doel te bereik . Ook die afrigting en hulp wat sulke persone kry is net om jou hande van saam te slaan.
