Things Valued, my feet.
Hugh Herr. He has no feet. Lost them in a mountaineering accident. His feet literally froze as he was lost in a blizzard during an adventure in the mountains. Hard to imagine going from an elite climber to disabled without feet. But, not Hugh Herr. At the time he lost his feet, prosthetics were in their infancy. He was miserable with the technology and unable to walk. So he studied and learned and eventually made his own feet, with specialized technology to reduce the pain of his weight on artificial limbs. He revolutionized prosthetics. And he returned to climbing, with his new feet. Inspiring!
