    Mark Simpson, 24, takes a rest between customers by his register at the Wal-mart on Old Forest Road. Simpson had his legs removed at the age of 17 after being born with no thigh bone making it hard to get around. Simpson is now pursuing a public speaking career and studying youth ministry at Liberty University. "In the end when people see me up on a stage I don't want them to see a double amputee. I want them to see a man who is striving to bring God's glory through his own life," said Simpson. Photo by Jill Nance
