Stories are sometimes depressing and sometimes inspirational. We believe they are most moving when the two are combined. Such in the story of Martin Pistorius. He was born no different than any other child, although by the time he was 12 he was completely debilitated and paralyzed. Unable to speak or even move a toe, Martin was trapped in his own body and 100% conscious. It was in this state that he’d suffer terrible physical, sexual and psychological abuse. Brace yourself, this one will tug on those heartstrings.
