Amputee girl in the subway

I met this girl on a train.

She misses her left hand.

She obviously has trouble controlling her touch-screen phone with only one hand.

And her artificial limb looks really…artificial, utterly unnatural.

At first I thought she was just carrying a shop window mannequin arm in her hands for some reason.

Only imagine how many stares she receives a day and appreciate how thick-skinned she must have made herself to be to actually withstand that. Be strong.
