    (July 25, 2006) — A budding young artist eagerly applies himself to developing his talent, but he's frustrated when his teachers allow him to work only in one medium, with one color.

    But I live with spinal cord injury. I know firsthand how horrific and unforgiving a condition it can be. I hope every day to hear news about any therapy that shows promise of a cure. Whether it takes one year or 30, those cured would enjoy for the rest of their days an immeasurable improvement in the quality of life that cannot truly be understood by those without a spinal cord injury. I hope to be among those who are someday cured; if not, I am hopeful for all who could benefit.
