Lost my right hand
 
I was riding a horse when it walked into a downed power line. The setting sun was in my eyes so I didn't see it until the last second. Blocked my head with my arm as I was going under it. 68,000 volt shock. Lost my right hand. I was 15 years old. That was 35 years ago.
Ya it sucks. Sit there for a minute, then live! I have done everything I want to in my life! Ups and downs happen to everyone and everyone on earth has had something happen to them that gives them a great reason to curl up in the corner and cry. That's not where I want to spend my life. I will live it doing what I want to. Where there's a will there's a way.
Every day is a gift that I will not waste!
Have a nice day everyone, make the earth better today than it was yesterday! :)!
