Welcome To My Blog

Today's blog post is unfair and unreasonable...

I have been living a life filled with pain and hurt since a botched surgery in 2007, which left me with a leg in turmoil. Years of physical therapy and too many prescription drugs to alleviate the pain to even keep track. I walk with a pronounced limp. I toss and turn when trying to sleep. The affliction has me in persistent misery.    

Too many times, I have moaned and groaned about the restrictions of my "disability". My mind has gone numb from the perpetual agony.

Today, I noticed a Marine making his way to the public bus. I knew he was a marine because he was in uniform. He was alone. Perhaps on his way home. He was in a wheelchair. He was a double amputee, no doubt coming home from the war.

I complain no longer...
