Revisiting Images: Things Aren't Always How They Appear

At first glance this photo seems absolutely amazing.  The courage and tenacity of this young Mexican one legged boy.  He appears to want to play soccer but he only has one leg!!  How can he kick the ball?

Life is not always how it appears.  Just as this photograph is not a picture of a one legged soccer player.  The photo simply is a snapshot of the boy's motion, a fraction of time.  We don't always get the full picture do we?  

How many snapshots of one legged players do you have in your head?  How many wrong conclusions and perceptions do we carry in our minds and hearts?  How long have we carried them?  Should we revisit those images once again?
