    What an incredibly touching story and what superb writing!

    I sent it on to a friend equally physically “diminished” by a hard fate,
    hoping it would give hope and courage.

    To me it was a welcome reminder to make the very most of every day
    and to never take working limbs for granted.

    Thank you, Mike Hirsch! You gave us a gift!
