My name is Judeland. I would like to share his story with you which happened during the Civil War in Sri Lanka on September 24th, 1996. My family and I will never forget that day. It was the night of September 23rd, 1996, there was a fight in the village. Thinking it too dangerous to leave during the night, we stayed until morning. Once daylight broke, we decided we had to make a run for safety. I jumped on my bicycle and peddled fast down the road, hearing a strange noise, getting close and closer behind me. The next thing I knew a bomb had exploded; a piece hit me in the lower back – I was in shock! I tried to move but the pain was terrible. I couldn’t move my legs.
This war gave me a new name: Paraplegic T12.
It’s been 21 years since my accident, there were times at the start where I wanted to end my life but I’m so glad I didn’t! These days 24 hours isn’t even enough for me to do the things I want to do, so many goals to achieve, love waking up and going for it. Time is always the best medicine who ever thought I would enjoy being the odd one out! I am in a wheelchair, but with a determination to never to give up my dream of living a full life, with all its challenges. I currently play AFL wheelchair footy for Richmond.
