This eight-foot mural with seven progressive scenes from left to right depicts the struggle that my childhood friend, Jamie, went through to get off the floor. Though severely paralyzed from polio, he could walk with braces and crutches, prominent in the 19 50’s and 60’s, by raising and swinging his legs in front of his crutches  for a step. He gave me, by watching him pick himself up inch by inch, the fortitude in overcoming insurmountable odds in spite of his acute paralysis.

Victorious Struggle
