It's a healthy Games. We all have the same goal. We all want to win, but it's really great and awesome when a competitor comes up and hugs you at the end of a race.

I have been a fan of the Paralympics since I lived in Atlanta in the '90s. Actually, the year before the Olympics, we went to the National Veterans Wheelchair Games, which were also terrific. Events that are driven by pure love of sport are a joy to watch.

The first two videos show Paralympians talking about their favorite movies, and the third shows Paralympians surprising people at the gym/dojo. Charming and inspiring!
