This is an awesome documentary in which three people that use a wheelchair for mobility, video tape themselves and take you up close and personal in their daily lives. It allows us to see their ups and downs as they adapt their environment and show us how they live. As a future clinician, it was a great resource for me. It gave me new ideas of ways to adapt the environment that I did not think about previously. It also reminded me to always keep my treatment client centered and to consider each client as their own. I think this is great for any student or person that is interested in working with people with disabilities. It's a perfect reminder to appreciate life.

"Advancing employment opportunities and expectations for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but our moral fiber. It creates a more inclusive America, one where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments — and that should be our goal not just on Labor Day but every day."

Assistant Secretary Kathy Martinez, Office of Disability Employment Policy, September 7, 2009
