Good for her
The photo above was featured in a report on acid attacks in the UK. I decided to reblog the young woman's image because of her willingness to display her burn scars. Many (?most) young women would probably choose to hide the scars with makeup, clothing, headbands, or hairpieces.
I am reminded of the photo of the girl who placed a decorative cover over her colostomy bag.
But in terms of accepting a disability or deformity, this week's prize goes to seven-year-old Birmingham schoolgirl Anu, who proudly displayed to her friends on the playground her new sports blade (artificial foot). If you haven't seen the gif, it's well worth the 41 seconds.
