As I write this, I have finished crying inside my cubicle after watching NBC’s documentary about the Paralympics in Beijing.
It is a 90-minute, continuous “Oh my” journey with amputee sprinters and swimmers, wheelchair basketball players and racers, a paralyzed shot-putter, a sailor with Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Marin Morrison, a swimmer devastated by a brain tumor. …
(Director) David Michaels said he would return home, usually teary, after editing the footage.
“My wife thought I was going hormonal on her,” he said. “She’d say, ‘OK, what now?’ and I’d say, ‘You can’t believe this story.’ I was so emotionally attached.”
