  • Stephen Hawking comments ...

    From: http://cosmiclog.msnbc.msn.com/_news...e-that-is?lite

    Q: How would you describe your quality of life? What do you miss most from before the onset of ALS?


    A: "Although I'm severely disabled and on a ventilator, my quality of life is pretty good. I have been very successful in my scientific work, and have become one of the best-known scientists in the world. I have three children, and three grandchildren so far. I travel widely, have been to Antarctica and have met the presidents of Korea, China, India, Ireland, Chile and the United States. I have been down in a submarine, and up in a zero-gravity flight in preparation for the flight into space that I'm hoping to make on Virgin Galactic.

    "Despite my disability, I have managed to do most things I want. My main regret is that it has prevented me from playing with my children and grandchildren as fully as I want."

    .................................................. .............................................

    Interesting comments. Don't let your disability stop you from achieving your dreams, ambitions and goals in life.

    very true! in a ted talk he said his disability gave him a lot of free time to contemplate not just the world, but the universe. just an all around interesting person. maybe one day i can be just a fraction as cool as he is!

        Hawking is a fascinating man, and proof that a good brain can take you places that most people could not imagine. He is an atheist who contemplates the great mysteries of the void, a man who is thought of first as a scientist by most people and then as one with a disability. He has steadfastly refused to allow himself to be used as a "poster child" by any of the disability groups who might desire to do so. I find him very admirable.
