" The Scarlet Ibis "
“ I can't walk brother “ he said “ who says so !” I demanded “ mama the doctor everybody “ “ oh you can walk , I said and I took him by the arms and stood up . He collapsed on the grass like a half empty flour sack . It was as if he had no bones in his little legs “ ….
Finally one day , after many weeks of practicing , he stood alone for a few seconds . When he fell I grabbed him in my arms and hugged him , our laughter pealing through the swamp like a ringing bell . Now we knew it could be done .
In the scarlet ibis doodle was physically disabled. Everyone had told him, he would not be able to walk expect his brother. Doodle practiced and practiced until he proved people wrong.
