Here’s one for the heart.
12-year-old Rosie Lawrence was in a horrible traffic accident six weeks ago. Her injuries were pretty severe, according to Daily News writers, Brendan Brosh and Tracy Connor,"The catalog of her injuries was horrific: every bone in her left leg broken, a ruptured spleen, a lacerated liver and a pelvic fracture. Doctors managed to save her leg, though she underwent several skin graft surgeries to repair massive tissue loss." I can only imagine the pain she is enduring. But the good news is with the help of a laptop and a video hookup, Rosie was able to attend her sixth grade graduation via her hospital bed. [YES!]
"I miss you guys," the soft-spoken girl said, her face lighting up as she looked into a laptop camera in her room at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell." (via New York Daily News article Her degree in bravery)
Rosie really gives courage a new name. I just hope the next time I start to moan and complain about technology and how it doesn’t work, that I remember Rosie.
