Brooke Ellison Inspiration

I recently saw a movie called, The Brooke Ellison Story. It’s based on a true story about Brooke Ellison, the first quadriplegic to graduate from Harvard University.

The movie was directed by Christopher Reeve and aired in 2004. Here’s a scene near the ending of the movie, a condensed version of Brooke’s commencement speech:

Here’s the actual speech:

And here’s an inspirational song featured in the movie:
