You were not blessed just because of nothing. It was because you fought your way to recovery. Being bound to a wheel chair for a year is not easy. There’d be moments when you’d lose hope that you will be able to walk again. But striving on, despite the difficulties, helped you be yourself once again. =)


I was reading about meningitis on Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meningitis). There is a photo of a victim of the Texas meningitis 1911-1912 outbreak on the page but no other caption.

It made me ask myself, who was that poor man and what about his family? Was he a father, son, husband, brother? And what about his time on earth, what kind of person was he, what was important to him?

I never heard of the Texas Meningitis outbreak so I Googled it and that's what led me to your blog. I'll never know who that man was but he looks like he endured horrible suffering.

May your blog prevent some from suffering the same fate.

Keep writing and best wishes!
