An Inspiration

Last night my wife and I went to a Peter Paul and Mary concert in Hartford, CT.

Mary has had a number of serious medical problems the past year and most recently has been under the care of my wife in the pulmonary area.

The concert was almost 2 hours long and was filled with music, stories, and laughter. They all have aged, but their
songs, the words and their spirit was just as high as it was during the '60s

But one of the most amazing things to me, was to see Mary on stage, knowing that she has trouble walking, breathing, etc.
She openly told the audience about her medical problems and that the fact that she was using oxygen, connected to her nose with a tube that went to tank off stage.

To see someone who really has serious medical problems step up and participate in something that they love and believe in. To me that is Courage.

I got to meet her backstage and all I can say is she is one remarkable women.
