Want to See Something Spectacular?
President Obama recently got into a tight spot when he referred to his poor performance in bowling as making him eligible for the Special Olympics. Now from China comes a spectacular event that shows just how accomplished Special Olympics can be.
If you go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgHmSdpjEIk you will see an awesome dance, called the Thousand-Hand Guan Yin. Considering the tight coordination required, their accomplishment is nothing short of amazing. But it is even more amazing when you realize that all 21 performers are deaf. Relying only on signals from trainers at the four corners of the stage, these extraordinary dancers from Chinese Disabled People's Performing Art Troupe deliver a visual spectacle that is at once intricate and stirring.
