    When you come right down to what is important in life, it ain’t politics. Even when politicians affect our lives, our lives aren’t about them. You’ve nailed what’s truly important so well with Dave’s story. I hope he heals quickly and completely and gets back to the things he loves to do with the ones he loves.

    Amazing story, and the two questions you have distilled from it are also inspiring. I vote for Dave, too.

    Wow. That’s an inspiring man and tale.
    And I think you buried a metaphor in here about cutting out that which will always cripple us somehow. And then making peace with it. Did you do that on purpose? Probably.

    Social media is two-edged sword as we all know, but so often it is the loud, clamouring voices that are heard whereas it is the dignified, thoughtful ones that are of value. It would be wonderful if these latter voices were also valued by the press, radio and tv too but not going to happen. So searching out the voices that should be heard and sharing them is a very precious task for all of us who are drowning and do not feel properly represented. Thank you so much for sharing this one.
