RE: [IPp] A Poem worth sharing

Great poem!
I have sent this to one of my English teacher friends who has had type 1
diabetes himself since childhood.
I thought it would inspire him AND his students.

It's all about perception.
My father has had type 1 for 43 years now and has no complications. He says
he would have been in the graveyard with his friends if he hadn't got type
1. He is 75 and continues to inspire us every day.

Mother of Christian 9 yo. Diagnosed at 4 yo.

This will bring tears to your eyes, I am only sending this to the adults in
the Support Group.  I felt it was important to share, we all allow ourselves
to feel fear about what the future holds for our children, but this video,
done by teenagers with type 1 diabetes gives you another way to look at
things.  Get your tissues out though. Suzanne
