No Limitation as Limitation

Who plays Matt Murdock:

A. Ben Affleck
B. Ben Underwood
C. Who is "Matt Murdock"?
D. See "B"

If you chose "A", you chose the actor. If you chose"B" or "D", good for you. Ben Underwood is a real life Daredevil, minus the tights and vigilantism. But what he does share in common with the Marvel Comics superhero, is this:

  • Both are blind.
  • Both are able to "see" by means of a "radar-sense", the other by "sonar" (echo location).
I saw this when it first aired, and only just the other day, rediscovered it:

See more...

Part II
Part III
Part IV
Part V

I encourage you to watch all 5 parts. It's not just Ben who is amazing. It's the character of his family, and specifically that of his mother Aquanetta who refuses to treat him as if he has a handicap. As Bruce Lee might say, "Using no limitation as limitation."

In the five part video, his refusal to see himself as handicapped becomes a handicap. We all have our handicaps....our strengths and our weaknesses.
