Day 93

Celebrity-worship and hero-worship should not be confused. Yet we confuse them every day, and by doing so we come dangerously close to depriving ourselves of all real models. We lose sight of the men and women who do not simply seem great because they are famous but are famous because they are great. We come closer and closer to degrading all fame into notoriety. – Daniel J. Boorstin

It’s 6: 35 PM on day 93 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Appam – bread made of rice batter –   and beef curry  for  breakfast,  tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no one has donated so far today but I did make the $25 donation  on behalf of the person that sent me money via PayPal yesterday – I wanted to get the money out of my account and into my campaign ASAP so as to avoid even the appearance of impropriety – feed myself myself Batura – deep fried bread – for lunch,  help my brother make Custard – every time he tested the mixture he had the same thing to say needs more sugar LOL 🙂  –  attempt to get myself off the wheelchair and onto the bed – I love my mom but every time she sees me struggling to do something she just comes in and does it for me – it makes me feel so incompetent 😦 –   and exercise for 10 minutes  – I should really buy my brother a gift of some sort thanks to him the exercise session didn’t long – he was on my mother’s back –  quite literally – LOL 🙂

Yesterday while on Twitter I was excited to read of a man in Berlin who was cured of HIV by means of a stem cell transplant however, my excitement quickly turned to deep dismay when I realized that more people were taking about The Golden Globes then a man being cured of HIV don’t misunderstand what I’m trying to say I fully acknowledge that everybody has the right to freedom of speech and I would NEVER dream of infringing on that right all I’m trying to say is that with a right to say what you want to say  comes a responsibility to say things that will make this world a better place. Is it just me or have people lost sight of what’s really important?  😦
