During a recent perusal of the Internet I ran into the two stories below. These are positive and uplifting stories.
The first is Scott Adams Blog. It is the story by Scott Adams, the author of Dilbert, who lost his voice due to an illness. His illness is one that is irreversible, and only affects his conversations within small groups. It is an interesting story and is a good read.
The second story is about a woman who was born cross eyed. The condition was not fixed soon enough and so she lived her life without stereo vision. It is an uplifting story talking about how she overcome this problem, and how her life changed when she recovered her vision.
