Watch and Listen to the story of Bethany Hamilton, a surfer girl that lost her arm at the age of 13 when a shark bit her. She took it as an opportunity to have a different wonderful life:

"Then one minute my arm's gone. I look back on that and I think how I wouldn't even change it if I had the opportunity to. I see all the doors that it's opened," she said.
