This happened to me today.
I met a beautiful 16 year old girl, who until the age of 9 was just another little girl.
She was treated in a busy hospital and given the wrong drugs.
She now has no independance. She cannot feed herself, dress herself, she cannot even voice her opinions or feelings. She lives in a wheelchair with the most devoted parents you could imagine.
This is her lot for the rest of her life.
I kissed her and thanked her for putting my life into perspective.
