Every human life has value.

Ok, people. If you liked the story American Idol contestant Paris Tassin had to tell, you’re gonna love this one. They’re not married yet, but Christ Medina is already taking his impending wedding vows very seriously. H/t The Anchoress

Having this kind of love and support is so important after a major trauma like a spinal cord or brain injury. Personally, I would not be where I am today without a family and community who loved and supported my life. Who helped me understand that my life was still worth living though it had been altered in a major way. Though I tried to keep myself optimistic, I had my moments of doubt and self pity and would have surely sank into deep depression and despair without those people helping me see how much I had to live for.
