The author reflects on the possibility that people suffering from spinal cord injury (SCI) can walk. He shared that various television programs featured people who are regaining function and some are walking again. He considered the news great especially for people with disabilities in the employment survey. He added that the programs of NextStepsNW, a nonprofit organization specializing in intensive exercise rehabilitation therapy, could help more in the SCI recovery program.
