Editor's View: Jennifer's indomitable spirit truly an inspiration to us all
Today we publish a story about courageous student Jennifer Smyth, who was left paralysed after a gymnastics accident four years ago, and is now walking with the aid of a robotic skeleton.
The technology is marvellous, but a major factor in Jennifer's success is her determination and grit.
She used all her energies to literally get on her feet again, and she has done so through her own ability and the strong support of others, including her mother.
Sadly, her father David, who passed away last year, did not witness her latest achievement, but this is a truly inspiring news story with which to start 2018.
