    Om Get Off Your Knees

    Growing up, John Robinson never considered himself an inspiration toothers. He was born a congenital amputee and stands three foot eight asan adult. Although he has no extension of his arms or legs, he has notbeen limited in his career or in his personal life. After graduating fromSyracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, hewent on to work for NBC affiliates in upstate New York and today is thedirector of corporate support for WMHT, the public broadcasting televisionstation in Albany. Robinson's success did not come easily. From learning how to dresshimself after going away to college, to making new friends and feelingaccepted, he struggled to come to terms with his disability and make a lifeon his own. Although his journey may not be considered "normal," he doesnot see this as an obstacle, but as an opportunity to succeed and to understandthe meaning of responsibility.Robinson writes in an honest, personal voice, showing that a disabilitydoes not have to get in the way of an education, a career, a family, or oneof his favorite hobbies, golf. Get Off Your Knees is a touching story and, asRobinson says, is for "anyone who feels they need inspiration, whether it bean individual with a mental or physical disability, parents of children withdisabilities, or someone looking to overcome an obstacle in life."
