"We desire what we don't possess, and it steals what we have."
"It's called motor neuron disease. It's a progressive neurological disorder that destroys the cells in the brain that control essential muscle activity; such as...speaking, walking, breathing, swallowing. The signals that muscles must receive in order to move are disrupted. The result is...gradual muscle decay, wasting away. Eventually, the ability to control voluntary movement is...lost...entirely. I'm afraid average life expectancy is two years. There's nothing I can do for you."I get it, two hours of something so 'medically pathetic' wouldn't sell tickets. However, in my opinion, it's this shortcoming that should be center stage. How often do you hear 'there's nothing I can do for you?' In any profession! Lou Gehrig was told this in 1939, Stephen Hawking in 1963, and I, 71 years later in 2010. Unacceptable!
