Obi Ndefo, best known for his role on Stargate SG-1 as the Jaffa Rak’nor has returned to teaching yoga after losing both of his legs in a motor vehicle accident. The actor suffered the injury last August when he was stuck by a drunk driver while loading groceries into his car.
While the actor could have grown bitter because of his injury, he chose to remain positive and continue to life his life, saying “This is just so horrendous what happened to me, why would I compound this by feeling bad about it?” He holds no ill feelings towards the 25 year old who stuck him, and fled the scene (whom police apprehended the following day).
It is our hope at Stargate Legacy that stories like this can teach all of us two things:
- No matter how bad things get, you will get through it.
- Be responsible and treat all life (including your own) as the fragile gift that it is.
