The Story of the Blind Artist <http://englishrussia.com/?p=2595>

He was not blind from the birth. He lost his sight during a digging 
operation in the forests of Ukraine, where they tried to find remains of 
Russian soldiers who are considered to be missing since the World War 2. 
He got blew up on the 50 year old German Nazi land mine and since then 
he couldn’t see with the both of his eyes.

We take so many thing for granted. Although these pictures may seem a 
bit crude on first look, take a look again. They are painted by a 
artist <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist> named Dimitri....who is 
blind. So many times we complain of things not being fair in our world 
but this artist clearly overcame his disability. Painting through your 
heart and not through your eyes....one step at a time.
Here's to a grateful Wednesday!
