Breath

There is little I appreciate more than the ability to breathe. Needless to say, if that gift was taken away from me, not only would I die, I would be very upset about it, too.

It’s good to breathe. I’d panic if my lungs weren’t strong enough to do it for me. God rest the victims of CF. May they find a cure, while I continue to suck in breaths of oxygen and nitrogen, simply to enjoy breathing.

PS: The pied piper of Hamelin was actually a bad guy. Once he got rid of the rats, the townsfolk didn’t pay him, so he stole all their children with his magical piping. The endings vary, but the bottom line is that he sealed them all in a cave. Whether or not they were returned once he was paid his 999 999 shillings is debatable.

    You’d be surprised how many people are excluded from the statistic "everyone".
