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
I AM DISABLED, SO WHAT?
