CBS Sunday morning

This program has been part of my Sunday morning routine for many years. Lots of interesting and thought provoking features.
But this AM, as part of the coverage of the Haiti earthquake, they showed the most inspiring game of soccer. It was played with amputees who has lost legs in the earthquake, and they were playing on crutches, full bore, all out, falling and getting up. Per the feature, being an amputee pre-earthquake in Haiti was shameful, and they were outcast. Since the earthquake and the number of people who have amputations, the outlook for amputees is much brighter. Outside agencies are teaching Haitians to build prosthesis (wow, that is had to spell???) and become physical therapists.
All in all, an inspiring story.
