His Voice Counts

It was a miracle that a single person changed the whole world in Ghana. Emmanuel was really lucky. I do not think he was the only one who wanted to fight for rights of disabilities, but he was the first one who made it.
He got his first gift from his mother who did not abandon him and pushed him to be a not useless people. That was very important to him and was why he is different from other disabled people. 
He got the support from the society. He successfully made his voice heard by riding a bicycle across Ghana. He let disabled people know that they can be more than a beggar. He let others know that disabilities in this country need help, they wanted better life. He got his "new leg", and then, started to help others like him and fight for rights for disabled people. 
He impressed their government and their king. These more powerful people's attitudes to disabilities influent others begin to respect disabilities. 
In this way, he made better lives and brighter futures for disabled people in Ghana. He told everyone that disabilities are not useless, he made normal people think they can be more than him. People thought him as Martin Luther King. He is a hero.
It is really important to held your belief, work hard, and speak your opinion out loudly. You may not powerful enough, but you can influence more powerful ones and they can help you to make your dream come true. Just keep this in mind: a butterfly flapping its wings in Rio de Janeiro might change the weather in Chicago.
