The President and First Lady with Paralympic Swimmer Brad Snyder and Olympic Fencer Mariel Zagunis:

Brad Snyder's story is a remarkable one. Just one year ago, Lieutenant Snyder was blinded by an IED while serving in Afghanistan. This summer, he competed in the London Paralympics, bringing home two gold medals and a silver medal in swimming. Watch as Brad shares his story with First Lady Michelle Obama. "Overcoming adversity is a decision that everyone makes," Brad said, "And you can let that beat you or you can make the decision to move forward."
