Bow Down "I use to want "normal" legs, but I believe as a child I built a facade of myself of I'm awesome and this is me, bow down." Meet, John Adams@blkmradams Victim at 3 years old who has now become unstoppable. "Growing up "different" wasn't as hard because I could hide my scars with pants, it took well into my 20's to fully #embrace my #burnscars, one warm day I started wearing shorts. Now I wear them proudly as a reminder that " I can not be stopped."

"The trauma was significant, causing me to flat line several times and loose a significant amount of muscle and skin. It took time and love, and with the help of#childrenshospitalofphiladelphia and my amazing family I grew #strong and#learned to walk again and care for my#injuries
