I have seen a couple online news headlines about the new flick "Murderball" and haven't paid any attention to it, figuring it was just another silly horror movie remake. Turns out, the film is a documentary about a quadriplegic rugby team that competes in the Para-Olympics. Several of the stars of the film were being interviewed on Larry King Live this evening and it was very inspiring. I was especially encouraged when King questioned them all about Stem Cell Research. None of them seemed too interested, and in fact, several of them said they wouldn't even be in line should a cure even be discovered. King seemed incredulous, but they insisted they were sincere, saying that there lives have been more accomplished and fulfilling since being in a wheel chair than they were when able bodied. Here are a few links of interest:
