While politicians brag about their silly non-accomplishments and tyranny, here’s a story that provokes a wide smile. A young man disabled with a rare genetic disorder, one that not only killed his brother but now confines him to a wheelchair, nonetheless hitches his wheelchair to a star—sorry, lawnmower and runs his own gardening business in England!

Simon Wakelin, 20, tells the Daily Mail, “’Putting together the lawnmower and giving my own business a go has been great. It has given me a means to earn an income and it is a great way to meet new people. Having a disability does not have to stop you from doing the things you want to.’

No, Simon, you indomitable hero, for that we need government.
