I am disabled, so what?

GOD grant me the

SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change

I dived into a shallow pool 26 years ago and broke my neck. I am

a quadriplegic in a motorized wheelchair, paralysed from my

chest down, paralysed in all four limbs. I accept my limitations. This

I cannot change.

COURAGE to change the things I can and

With God by my side I chose to continue my teaching career, to

become a deputy principal, to learn to drive my specially adapted

car, to inspire and motivate, to make a difference. I chose LIFE.

WISDOM to know the difference.

I broke my neck, BUT not my SPIRIT

I sit in my wheelchair, BUT I will always STAND TALL

I may never walk again, BUT I am going places and LIVING MY LIFE

I face challenges just like you, BUT I choose to LIVE, LAUGH and LOVE
