    Wonderful article. I admire Kelly’s tenacity and forthrightness. She calls it as she sees it but always with style and grace. I especially like the way she views the use of a wheelchair as, “…a tool for independence, not the anchor of limitation….” That statement alone tells us who Kelly is. A fighter, resilient, someone who doesn’t see herself as unable. She is a role model for all of us and I salute her.
