  This resource is dedicated to the people of Iceland, who adopted the cure of spinal cord injury, one of mankindís most devastating disorders, as a human-rights issue. Because Icelandís support of this cause has the potential to help so many throughout the world yet relatively few of its own citizens, it represents a standard by which a society is judged. Instead of force that is so commonly used in todayís world of geopolitical self interest, Iceland is employing power, whose impact will be much more enduring.
