so many memories
All throughout your life,
You fought the greatest battle
You have ever known
Christopher, the handicap you have,
Is also the same one I own.
I am one of the people
Who have read about your plight,
You tried to help so many like us
With a spinal injury to fight,
There are Doctors and nurses
Who cannot understand,
Yet we try to be remembered
For trying as hard as we can.
find it hard to help us,
Because we cannot climb upon a table
And they seem tempted to say,
We are too hard to handle
Please go somewhere else today.
For some people see through us,
Even though we are in pain
Christopher, you are a superman,
You gave it all you had, so unafraid.
You will be remembered for your courage
Taking hold of a challenge
And making things happen
Giving of yourself for those,
Who have a disability, like me
You will live in my memory Christopher
And when I see myself in this wheelchair,
I will thank you for giving me the chance
To live a little longer, because you dared.
I will not cry for you or feel sorry for you
Because a survivor is what I see,
I am proud to be one with you
You will always be a great man to me.
Linda Ann Henry
Do remember me
The people's poet
Doubt sees the
obstacles, faith sees the way,
Doubt sees the darkest night, faith sees the
Faith dreads to take a step, faith soars on
Doubt questions who believes, Faith answers I.
Faith is reason grown courageous
Faith is to believe what you do not yet see,
The reward for this faith is to see what you
Faith is taking the first step even when
you don't see the whole staircase
Martin Luther King
