Resilient spirit of spinal cord injury victims
I never cease to be amazed and inspired by the resilient spirit of clients with spinal cord injuries. We have one paraplegic client who braved Third World travel conditions to participate in a church mission trip to Nicarauga. She ministered to women and children in the community, taught music classes at a school for the blind and helped at an orphanage for children with disabilities. There was also our quadriplegic client — paralyzed in an SUV rollover — who was determined to write books and return to college teaching, and a mute quadriplegic client who couldn’t do much but was always the most optimistic and cheerful person in the room. All of these remarkable people were patients of the Shepherd Spinal Center in Atlanta, which is just about ten minutes from our office.
