We’ve all seen this touching poem written by an unknown cancer patient.
WHAT CANCER CAN’T DO
It cannot cripple love, it cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith, it cannot eat away peace
It cannot destroy confidence, it cannot kill friendship
It cannot shut out the memories, it cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul, it cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.
All this is true, and more. I am living proof. But it’s not just true about cancer. It is true about any situation in our lives. I know I have passed my positive attitude on to Danny. I hope he keeps it throughout his life. I offer this regarding blindness:
WHAT BLINDNESS CANNOT DO (by me)
It cannot silence sound. It cannot stop creativity.
It cannot dim vision. It cannot eliminate motion.
It cannot reduce self-respect. It cannot erase intelligence.
It cannot still hands. It cannot destroy heart.
It cannot limit dreams.
Here is my internal inspiration!
And here is the inspiration found in my inbox this morning. A blind photographer. Can you imagine? No? Well thankfully Pete Eckert could…
Amazing, right? I wish no less for Danny in his lifetime.
