Topic: A bit off topic but made me think

I watched a programme last night about a little girl who's suffering from a disease that ages her fast.  She wasn't supposed to still be here as they only gave her a few years when born.  Through courage and determination and medical progress she is now at secondary school.

One of the things she said last night put it into words about the so called experts, who at times are less then positive.

"They said the Titanic was unsinkable!!"

This made me laugh and cry at the same time.

Devoted Daughter to the most wonderful Dad a girl could ask for.  Sadly lost his battle on 19.02.11, peacefully in the arms of Mom and I.  As requested by Dad "we will keep on smiling".

I saw it, too, Andie.  She's such an inspiration isn't she.
