Noted, tweeted, and shared. Many times when I sign petitions or read articles about humans being cruel and having no respect for life. I feel ashamed of being human. These two girls are an inspiration to all of us. Kudos to them and to their parents. God bless and care for them.

The young women I am meeting lately blow grown men of steel strength off the charts....these two (2) beyond remarkable women join forces with the likes of Aimee Copeland....and what did we compain about today? Traffic, a bad haircut, smudged manicure?

Their last line, written by souls belonging to Heaven, sends a very strong message to able bodied people for whom life becomes but a drama of pathos, self indulgence and egocentrism. These three (3) women could literally rule the world with their attitudes. Ironic isn't it, our politicians behave like toddlers in the face of exacting fearlessness coupled with astonishing disability.

So very sad yet uplifting at the same time.

I suppose if there's a God and he did this, one could say it's to give the rest of us that "reality check" and make us think twice before complaining about trivial matters (and yes, it works). But it's still damn cruel. Why be an all-powerful deity and build yourself a bunch of tiny, flawed creatures just so you can make them suffer for the imperfections you placed in them yourself? Why teach them "lessons" so they can make sense of things in the mortal realm -- yet at the same time hold yourself inscrutable to their flawed and lowly human logic, requiring them to take things on faith alone? Seems like mixed messages to me. But then, what do I know?

Best, best, best to these lovely girls, and may they somehow get better, not worse.

Mom & Dad may be sorry they got the machines for them, if they are going to ask about SEX (LOL)!!!
I wish then a happy future!!
