Letters to the editor on triumphing over disabilities, peaceful Muslims, leave Middle East, Koch, birthers, disabled a priority

I was impressed to see the article about the positives of adaptive technology and the hope and determination of someone who became disabled in 2010, coincidentally, the same year I did (“Paralyzed ex-baseball star back in the hunt,” Sept. 15 Eagle). I was born with Chiari malformation, a hernia of the brain. The March 2010 emergency brain surgery robbed me of my balance, some coordination, and my tolerance for temperature, which led to months of fighting serious depression and trying to retain work.
