The pictures and trinkets in John Powell's tiny room don't necessarily tell his story.
The 66-year-old Henry County native was born with a defect on the right side of his body, which forced him to wear a brace most of his younger years.
"I remember when I was little, I wore that brace all the way up to my hips," he said.
Crutches also supported the young Powell, but by high school he says he had shucked the aids and was able to walk unassisted.
Now, however, the 66-year-old wishes he could get around better.
