Inspiring

One of my favorite parts of being a columnist is that I get to meet some amazing people. Very recently I met a lady who become a quadriplegic after an accident at age 26. She told me how writing poetry helps her cope with everyday life and expressing her joy in the simple things in life.  While reading her poetry you can feel what she is seeing and feeling at that moment. This inspiring lady dictates her poems to her caregivers who then type them up into poetry books that she shares with friends and families. Please take a moment and feel her inspiration and beauty in her poems.
