Victoria Arlen, a teen paralyzed swimmer that set a world record is disqualified from participation in the upcoming Montreal Paralympics because she has hope of being able to walk again someday with treatment in the future.  It doesn't make any sense to me, of their rules that one must be permanently disabled. It's like a Deaf athlete being disqualified to participate in the Deaflympics if he is planning on having a cochlear-implant procedure in the future. Enjoy our life at the moment, forget the past and not worry about the future, accept us as who we are today!
