Title: A love letter to realism in a time of grief

Presenter: Mark Pollock and Simone George

Video time: 20 Mins.

Titled “A love letter to realism in a time of grief” this is a beautiful talk by Simone and Mark. It talks about the challenges in their lives (alone and together). Mark lost his sight in his 20’s and rebuilt his life, achieving the most amazing feats (climbing… is one example). A year after he achieved this he fell through an open window and was paralysed from the waist down. They share the stage talking about the lessons they learned and what how to resolve the tension between acceptance and hope in times of grief. The video discusses at depth what they’ve done for paralysis research, use this as a metaphor of what you can still achieve in your life while you carry your grief.
