So you might be saying, “So what.” The thing is if you don’t write down your past who will. There is a very high probability that unless you’re someone like Lady Diana or Billy Graham that no one else will but you.
It’s just like Mari’s story. I already know that unless I write it down that the chance of it ever being written is slim to none. Her story has the potential of touching so many lives but in order for that to happen it has to be written down first.
One thing I have done is to write down her entire life story. The only problem I’ve found is that, again, unless you are some really famous person people want to know all the little details that not too many are going to be interested. That was hard for me to swallow since I had put so much time and energy into the book I wrote. In the end I, too, realized it just wasn’t right. It’s her hospital story that so many resonate with and so that is the story that needs to be told. My hope is that by writing her story it will touch the lives of others and help people to see that even in the worst tragedy imaginable that there will always be hope. We just have to be open and receptive to see it.
