Last week I had to go to the hospital to visit a friend. I was sitting in the waiting room and saw a young lady coming down the hall. She was about 4'11" and using crutches with arm braces. Each step she took she had to drag one foot, then the other. It took along time for her to just move 50 feet, but she kept on going. I noticed the hospital staff greeting her - she had many friends. Clearly, she would have a easier time in a wheelchair. When she came close to me, I said "Hi". She was delighted and so friendly. She thanked me for speaking to her and stopped to visit. As it turns out, she is a volunteer at the hospital in the "cath" lab. She comes every day to work several hours. Even though she has such a struggle just to walk, she does not let that stop her. She looked so tired but would just stop and rest, then keep going. What else can I say.... she is a hero to me.
