A sparkle of Hope

Imagine  waking up one day without any arms or legs .How different your life would be !! Luckily you wake up and jump out of your bed and swing your limbs in every possible direction . It was all just a dream . Sadly , this so called ‘dream ‘, turned out to be very real for  Nicholas James Vujicic (he is better know as Nick Vujicic) . This post is dedicated to him. Born in Melbourne , Australia ; he was diagnosed with a rare disease known as tetra-amelia.

You can use them to warm your hands in the cold , during a black out, as a torch , or as  devices to tell you the direction of the wind and even as an emergency beacon and last but definitely not the least, light things on fire  “. Those were the exact same words I told my friend when he asked me why I liked those little tin cans so much . He replied by saying ” Can’t you do all of those things with a matchstick?” . (more…)
