Paralyzed Bride Walks Down the Aisle

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff" – Stevie Beale. Beale was paralyzed in a car accident when she was 17. Years of tough recovery and therapy would follow. But she made a promise to herself, that if she ever got married, she would somehow walk down the aisle.

And that is exactly what she did. After months of work, Stevie walked down the aisle with the assistance of her walker, and her father of course. But what makes this the "Good Stuff" is how Stevie met her husband. After her accident, Stevie didn't give up hope, she instead volunteered her time helping others with similar injuries a local hospitals.

One of those people she helped was Brianna Mullinger who lost her leg in an accident. It was Brianna who introduced Stevie to her future husband.

And of course, Stevie only had to walk down the aisle, her new husband Jared carried her back up it.

    In the aftermath of the whole Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman thing, I found it encouraging that in Lexington, Kentucky, of all places (not where you'd expect to find a multicultural melting pot) African-American and Hispanic high school students work very well together every day as teacher's assistants for the 9th grade English teacher. They excel in their studies AND in their respect for one another. It's provided an important example of how society SHOULD work for both students and faculty.
