Letter: Your view - Edward paints a picture of hope; Comment OF THE DAY.

Byline: N. G.

THE tale of paralysed artist Edward Rainey should be a huge inspiration to people whose lives have been turned upside down after a serious accident.

He's proved having a disability needn't stop anyone achieving their ambitions, you just need a combination of hard work and determination.

Just look at so-called Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius, who lost both his legs as a baby but now competes against the world's best able-bodies athletes on the running track in his prosthetics.

My cousin recently broke his neck when a rugby scrum collapsed and I will be using both these incredible stories to spur him on in tough times.

N. G., Yeovil
