Identifier

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

To get some idea of how severe the symptoms can be, it might be worth watching My Left Foot (1989), a drama film which tells the true story of Christy Brown, an Irishman born with cerebral palsy, who could control only his left foot. Christy Brown grew up in a poor, working-class family, and became a writer and artist. It is both an education, but also an inspiration for those in despair, that it is possible to achieve great things even with disabilities this bad.
