Footless Karate Kid

Five staff members here at CNN Student News have at least one thing in common:  We all took karate when we were kids.  And we all achieved different belts:  yellow, orange, blue, brown, black...  You name it; one of us had it.

So what was amazing to us about the girl in Wednesday's program was that she was missing parts of her feet - but that she'd gone farther in karate than ANY of us had!  Her second-degree black belt was a beautiful testament to success despite the odds.
