...and it was another great story about something unusual, uplifting and some would say, miraculous.
I find these stories fascinating, a deep seated hope I suppose of something special happening in an otherwise sad and mechanical world. I think most
of us are here for this reason, the search for the mysterious and wondrous. To quote Albert Einstein, "The most beautiful and deepest experience a
man can have is the sense of the mysterious." Very well put.
Miracles or not, these stories and accounts are exceptional. I have collated a few of my favourites and presented them below.
First, the story of Kirsty Collier. In summary, born with a heart condition, she underwent an operation where the surgeon removed a third of her heart
and had no expectation of success. She is now a normal healthy girl and following a scan of the heart, no scarring was found on the now normal and
Second, the fascinating story of Demi-Lee Brennan, another teenage girl, this time somehow managed to change bloodgroups following a liver transplant,
something never before documented.
Third, and more medical science than miracle but still an interesting case, is D'Zhana Simmons, kept alive by a custom built machine for four
months. This isn't as miraculous as the others but is a great story of hope.
Miracle, culmination of millions of variables or pure chance, all these stories have one common theme, hope, and it is this that seems to be so
lacking in today's world. But that's another story in itself.
