Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year. 
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.  
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.

But what I have on my side, my compass, is loving music. And that never goes away. A lot of ideas come and go in my mind, but the idea that I love music and I gave my life to it and the feeling of making a record is exactly the same whether it’s my biggest-selling record or my least-selling record. I just follow that feeling. If you follow anything other than that feeling, you’re screwed. Because when it doesn’t happen your way and you don’t have that love of music that you can hold on to, you’re just lost. — John Mayer.
