    You deserve a medal. We all do really. The picture of your car is very frightening. I am sort of glad there is no recorded image of my fateful dive. Sending you a hug of support and friendship.

    Sorry to see the picture,
    take the time to reflect everything you have accomplished since then, but please don't dwell in the reflection, get going on what you're going to accomplish the next three years

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Thanks glittergirl.I guess that kind of "medal" is better than none for sure!

    Geno,back @ you.Making friends through SCI has been an "added bonus".

    Eileen,yes we all deserve medals.I guess the scar will have to do
    though.

    Mckeomp,very true and I need to give the fear up.Very appropriate.

    WFE,you really forget the date?It is a strange day,especially when I drove past where it happened today.I rolled over and knocked down a small tree that night and for the longest time it looked as if it were dead.It recently started growing and is now bigger than the others.I take that as a sign to grow myself.

    Bruce,last year I looked @ it as the anniversary that my life ended.I sat and thought about it the other night and from now on it will be the anny that a very special person came into my life b/c of SCI.I am counting my blessings today that I'm not as bad off as I was by the time I got tothe hospital and the following weeks.I was granted some recovery,I'll take that happily.I WILL conquer the next three years more gracefully,SOMEHOW.

    Thank you too Becky.Yea,I have more visible pictures somewhere but can't find them.It is weird to look @ knowing I was all smashed in the back of that two-seater,ugh.That and the memory of reaching for my phone and not being able to is still so vivid.<chills>
    I am doing something special this evening,dinner and drinks w/ two special people,well three if you count the margarita.
