Because of ongoing wars in Afghanistan, a shocking number of people there have lost limbs to land mines. This morning, I heard a story on the radio about a group of men who started a bicycle messenger service in Kabul. The men all have just one leg each, yet they're able to deliver pizza and documents throughout the city -- often faster than cars could on the congested roads. Most deliveries cost only $1.

It's a pretty amazing story. Where many people in their position can't find a way to feed themselves or their families, these men have carved out a totally unexpected way to make a living.
